CLOB and BLOB INFORMIX data types usage?

Hi!
I'm trying to use CLOB and BLOB data types from INFORMIX
But they aren't supported by BDE. These types has many advantages
over BYTE AND TEXT data types, actually they are obsolete.

Is there any change to achieve that BDE support these data types ?
or, What can I do to achieve this?

Regards!!!
