Hi Igor Tandetnik,

I did follow the procedure to store the blob data.I have no problem in
excuting it but my problem is that when my data is of the below type in

Where there are lots of null character in the buffer the sqlite fails to
take them as values and hence im having difficulty in storing this kind of
buffer.

Use a parameterized query, e.g.

update tablename set blobfield=:blob where id=:id

Use sqlite3_prepare / sqlite3_step / sqlite3_finalize to execute such a 
query. Use sqlite3_bind_blob to bind a binary buffer to BLOB parameter.

RE: [sqlite] INSERT INTO with SELECT

2006-11-13 Thread RB Smissaert
OK, thanks for the reply.
I am using the same construction to write directly from Interbase to Access
and that works fine. I can make an ADO recordset first from the Interbase
data and write that to SQLite in a (double) loop, but it is a bit slow.
Maybe I should write to text first (which is quite fast) and then write to
SQLite. I am not sure though how to import text into SQLite.
Trouble with the SQLite ODBC driver is that documentation is a bit sparse.
Maybe I should use a transaction, but not sure how that works either.

I notice your code creates this sql:

 INSERT INTO  READCODE (SUBJECT_TYPE, READ_CODE, TERM30, TERM60)
 SELECT R.SUBJECT_TYPE, R.READ_CODE, R.TERM30, R.TERM60
 FROM READCODE R
IN " [  ? ] "

Which isn't valid.  The IN clause is part of WHERE, not a separate
qualifier.
It works like this:

select x as prime  from mytable  where x in ( 1,2,3,5,7 );

Since the select is reading from READCODE you're inserting values
into the same table you're selecting them from. There's no way that I know
of to use odbc to copy from one database to another unless they're both
of the same type.

I would do it by selecting all the values to copy in one statement and
writing
them to memory or a disk file. Then import to the other database in a second
step.

Yes. Otherwise a trigger would be rather pointless.


Let's say:

CREATE TABLE  tableA (

CREATE TABLE  tableB (
Ref  INTEGER,
... );

CREATE  TRIGGER DeleteReferences BEFORE DELETE ON tableA
BEGIN
  SELECT CASE
  WHEN (SELECT count(*) FROM  tableB  WHERE  Ref  =  OLD.Id) != 0 THEN
RAISE(ABORT, 'Id field referenced in Table-B')
// These one Work!!
  WHEN (SELECT count(*)  FROM tableB  WHERE  Ref  =  OLD.Id) != 0 THEN
DELETE FROM  tableB  WHERE  Ref = OLD.Id
 // I get an error here
 END;
END;


You cannot put a DELETE statement inside a SELECT statement. Note that 
RAISE() is a function and may appear where an expression can appear. 
DELETE is a statement.


Make it

CREATE  TRIGGER DeleteReferences BEFORE DELETE ON tableA
BEGIN
  SELECT RAISE(ABORT, 'Id field referenced in Table-B')
  where exists (SELECT * FROM  tableB  WHERE  Ref  =  OLD.Id);

   DELETE FROM  tableB  WHERE  Ref = OLD.Id;
END;

If there are in fact no records in tableB that match the condition, 
DELETE will safely do nothing. You don't need an explicit check first.

[sqlite] Format change to fts2 module.

2006-11-13 Thread Scott Hess

http://www.sqlite.org/cvstrac/chngview?cn=3511

This changes the storage to delta-encode docids, rather than storing
them in absolute form.  Unfortunately, since this changes the format
of the backing data, if you've been experimenting with fts2 databases,
you'll have to regenerate them (see the email snippet below).

I'm going to try to get a couple other format-changes checked in this
week, in the hopes of getting the fts2 file format frozen.

Thanks,
scott

Once a file gets corrupted, there is nothing that can magically
undo the corruption.  

What I did to open the file was put both the database as it
appeared on disk after the power failure, but before it was
opened by your broken version of sqlite, and the rollback
journal together in the same directory.  Then I opened the
database with a working version of SQLite and it recovered

Is it mandatory then?


Apparently yes, if you want the database to be readable by SQLite 
version 3.1.3 and earlier. VACUUM works basically by creating a new 
table with the same structure as the old one, copying all the data over, 
and finally dropping the old table. I guess ALTER TABLE is implemented 
with some data structure (a linked list of columns or something) that 
older SQLite versions don't understand. By completely rebuilding a table 
from scratch, VACUUM also removes this data structure.


And I was wrong: you can vacuum an individual table, and even an 
individual index.

Re: [sqlite] so many warnings on vc6 with warning level 4

2006-11-13 Thread Clay Dowling
First, I use the pre-built DLL from the SQLite web site, and then use my
compiler's library import utility to generate the appropriate import lib. 
That saves me all the warnings.

Second, examine the actual warnings, not just the count.  You'll find that
a large number of them are warnings about deprecated library methods such
as strcpy.  The fact that Microsoft has chosen to deprecate standard
library functions is a Microsoft issue rather than an SQLite issue.  It's
true that a lot of these functions are dangerous in inexperienced and
careless hands.  It's also true that they're very safe and have been used
successfully for 30 years by programmers who understand their limitations
and use them appropriately.

Examine the warnings, look at the code around them, see if there is any
merit to the warnings or if it's more of a chicken little situation.  If
you can't check all 600, spot check several which you find at random.  And
remember that there's nothing wrong with strcpy and strcat, as long as the
destination buffer is large enough for the string being received.  Look
for the allocation of that buffer and see how it's come about and how the
size is checked.

You'll have to talk with the compiler people at Microsoft about
that.  I consider those warnings problems with the compiler, not
problems with SQLite.

The regression test suite for SQLite has like 98% coverage. 
High-coverage testing like this is a much, much better way
to find problems that compiler warnings.  My suggestion is
that you turn all the compiler warnings off when compiling
SQLite.

I read something about vaccuming the table? What about it?

You can't vacuum a table, you can vacuum an entire database. VACCUUM
command cleans up free space possibly left after deleted records, making
DB file smaller. It should be noted that this free space will eventually
be used by new records, but for some usage patterns it may still be
useful to vacuum (e.g. the application usually keeps a small amount of
data, but it has spikes where it adds a large number of records then
deletes most of them).





In any case, I don't quite see how this is related to the issue of

determining the existence of a column.



from http://www.sqlite.org/lang_altertable.html

" After ADD COLUMN has been run on a database, that database will not be

You can't vacuum a table, you can vacuum an entire database. VACCUUM 
command cleans up free space possibly left after deleted records, making 
DB file smaller. It should be noted that this free space will eventually 
be used by new records, but for some usage patterns it may still be 
useful to vacuum (e.g. the application usually keeps a small amount of 
data, but it has spikes where it adds a large number of records then 
deletes most of them).


In any case, I don't quite see how this is related to the issue of 
determining the existence of a column.

sqlite.version

'1.0.1'


[sqlite] Newbie sqlite questions: check existence of column

2006-11-13 Thread Florent THIERY

Hi

First of all i must say i'm pretty much impressed of how easy it is to buid
a sqlite db up within minutes/hours of work. I'm... amazed :)

Still, i'm lacking answears.

My (soon-to-be-open-source-when-there-will-be-interesting-source-to-open)
project is the following:

i scan for files recursively (jpeg files) and parse it's header. Every piece
of the header means something, represented by an absolute path (such as
"/sof/content/nr_components" ). I'd like to automatically fill a local db
with these parameters, with:
- the column name = the absolute path
- a line = a file

Some files have optional fields, so what i'd like to do is, whenever such a
file is scanned and parsed, i want my software to
- check first if the column already exists; that, i have no idea how to
achieve it
- if not, create the table :
  cur.execute("alter table jpgs add column %s" % (field.path) )
- then add the parameter value to the (new or not) column; but i don't want
a new line to be created every time; is an "update" query the good one?

I read something about vaccuming the table? What about it?
Should i rather parse the entire file and commit the summary to the table?
How to add columns?

Thanks a lot for your help

Regards

Florent

Add another column for the play list order and "order by" on that column.

RE: [sqlite] sqlite3_table_column_metadata????

2006-11-13 Thread ravi.karatagi

HI All,
Below is the code.
get_table_data() is giving the expected values.Where as I am not able
get meta info of the same.

sqlite3 *handle;
char *errmsg;
const char *datatype;
const char *colseq;
intNotNull,PrimaryKey,Autoinc;
const char *err;
   

   
if(sqlite3_open("temp.db",)==SQLITE_OK)

{
sqlite3_exec(handle,"create table person (integer pid,text
name)",NULL,0,);
sqlite3_exec(handle,"insert into person
values(1,\"Ravi\")",NULL,0,);
sqlite3_exec(handle,"insert into person
values(2,\"Anand\")",NULL,0,);
sqlite3_exec(handle,"insert into person
values(3,\"Sujit\")",NULL,0,);
if(sqlite3_table_column_metadata(handle,"temp.db",

"person","pid",)==SQLITE_
OK)
cout<<"Success";
else

err=sqlite3_errmsg(handle);

Regards,
Ravi K

Providing your code which is calling sqlite3_table_column_metadata()
would help.  Just saying that you are calling it correctly doesn't give
anyone a place to investigate; if you are calling everything correctly
then it should work.

RE: [sqlite] What is the best way to connect to SQLite from VB/VBA?

2006-11-13 Thread RB Smissaert
Thanks for that. I got this driver going now and will compare it with
SQLiteDb.dll from TerraInformatica.
Have you come across any problems with the ODBC driver? The author states
that there there could be quite a few like memory leaks.
Being able to use the same ADO methods etc. with the ODBC driver makes
things easier indeed.

This is from VB6/VBA. The database I am working with is Interbase 5.6 and
I will have to move data from IB to SQLite.

I took the after-power-failure sample database you sent me and
opened it using SQLite version 2.8.17.  That worked great.  There
were no errors.  PRAGMA integrity_check showed that the database
was recovered intact.

I suggest you download the latest 2.8.17 code and recompile
using that.
