Re: [sqlite] Static sqlite3 library for Linux

2018-02-14 Thread Arjen Markus
If you use the amalgamated source, there is only one file to be compiled. That 
can be as simple as:

gcc -c sqlite3.c

ar r libsqlite3.a sqlite3.o



Any further dependencies are up to the linker. No need to worry about that.

Arjen

I have seen it in presentations by German speakers (the nationality, not the

You will need an installation of Tcl, but these are easy to find. One place is

Hi,

I have a problem executing a query on a WinCE6 ARM 
device.
I use SQlite for years and tested on all types of 
devices including WinCE6 ARM and never had a problem.


But I have one problem on particular device that has a 
Texas Instruments ARM CPU with WinCE6.

A very simple way to reproduce my problem is:
Create Table t1(c1 DECIMAL(12,3))
Insert Into t1(c1) values(2.55)
Select c1 From t1

I run this "Select" with sqlite3_get_table()
The value I get is "3.,+"

It makes no sense, it is not even a number, and only 
happens if the decimal values have a number higher than 
5.

This seems to be a problem with this CPU/WinCE version.

I don't know SQLite source code, and it is huge, so can 
someone tell me where in the source code the float (or 
double, I don't know) value of 2.55 is being converted to 
a string to be outputed by sqlite3_get_table()?

Or any hint on how to track the problem?

Note: I copied the database file to my PC and the value 
stored there is 2.55, so the problem is retrieving the 
value on the device.




I have no solution to offer and you probably thought of it
yourseld too, but the + might be an attempt (rather
superfluous and annoying) to indicate upward rounding
took place.

Does this happen with an ordinary C program too? The 
culprit
would be the printf() family as implemented on the 
platform.

Can scanf() read this type of numbers?

Arjen

Well, depending on your planet this can be said for any language :), but
it is indeed possible to use SQLite3 in a Fortran program. There are
actually two different bindings that I know of (one is my own -

Re: [sqlite] What languages can include SQLite statically?

2010-05-21 Thread Arjen Markus
Hi Gilles,

I do not quite understand why this is important to you, but the answer
is independent of SQLite itself - and it is a trifle complicated.

You can add Fortran to the list below - either a static or a dynamic
library will do fine.

If you look at Tcl, the matter becomes more complicated:
- Tcl supports static packages, in which case you can add a static
   library to the link step (and add a call to the proper Tcl functions
   to initialise it).
- Tcl also supports dynamically loading packages, in which case you
   need a dynamic library. But, and here comes the complication, you
   can also wrap the Tcl runtime executable and all (!) its dependencies
   into a single file. In fact there are various options to do so,
   for instance via Tclkit (you get a so-called starkit then).
   Does that count as a single EXE? You only need to distribute a
   single file - but there is still a dynamic library in there
   somewhere.

I am not very familiar with other dynamic languages (scripting
languages if you want), but I understand they have similar
technologies.

A language where this is definitely not possible is Java. There
you need to supply separate jar-files and native libraries. But
again, that is a matter of the _language mechanisms_, not of
SQLite. (The same for C#, if I am not grossly mistaken)

Regards,

Arjen

#ifdef __FAST_MATH__
# error SQLite will not work correctly with the -ffast-math option of GCC.

  volatile double y = x;
  volatile double z = y;

So it looks as if you have little choice. I'd say, Mike's suggestion is the

Well, basically lemon works as follows:
1. It reads the definition of the parser from the input file
   you give it as the first argument. From that it produces
   a set of tables that implement the parser. This information
   gets filled in in a template.
2. The result is a C file that you can use to parse (interpret)
   your input.
3. What it does not do is split up the input into tokens. You
   have to do that yourself.

I attach a small - not very efficient - example that shows a
few features of lemon.

As for your questions:
There is no reason it would not work on Windows: it is a
perfectly straghtforward C program, you get the source code
and compile it. One thing though: the template file must be
in the directory where you run the program, where the
executable lives or in the PATH.

(I am using it myself on Windows :). I am adapting it so that
it will produce Fortran code instead of C code. But that is
off topic.)

Here is my sample parser definition:

// expr.y
// Simple parser:
// expr = vaue + value + value + ...

%extra_argument {State *state}
%token_type {Token*}
%type term {int}

expr ::= firstterm plusterms . {
printf( "Result: %d\n", state->sum );
}

firstterm ::= term(T) . {
state->sum = T;
printf("First term: %d\n", T );
}

term(V) ::= NUMBER(N) . {
sscanf( N->token, "%d",  );
printf("Term: %d -- %s\n", V, N->token );
}

plusterms ::= .
plusterms ::= plusterms plusterm .

plusterm ::= PLUS term(T) . {
state->sum = state->sum + T;
printf( "Result so far: %d\n", state->sum );
}

--
And here is the main program that includes the
resulting C code:

#include 
#include 
#include 

typedef struct {
char *token;
} Token;
typedef struct {
int sum;
} State;

#include "expr.h"
#include "expr.c"

int main( int argc, char *argv[] ) {
Token token[10];
State state;

void *pParser = (void *) ParseAlloc( malloc );

ParseTrace( stdout, ">>" );

token[0].token = "1"; Parse( pParser, NUMBER, [0],  );
token[1].token = "+"; Parse( pParser, PLUS,   [1],  );
token[2].token = "2"; Parse( pParser, NUMBER, [2],  );
token[3].token = "+"; Parse( pParser, PLUS,   [3],  );
token[4].token = "3"; Parse( pParser, NUMBER, [4],  );

Parse( pParser, 0, [0],  );

ParseFree( pParser, free );

return 0;
}

-
One thing to note:
As the tokens are not always treated the moment they are passed
to the parser - this depends on the grammar and the moment in the
parsing process, you need to make sure that the tokens remain
available. I have done that in this silly program by using an
array of them. But a smarter program would use lemon's
abilities to destroy the tokens when ready.

Arjen

As most computers nowadays use the IEEE standard to represent

Hm, that is a completely different question. It would mean that more

I do not know enough about the way SQLite organises these things to 
speculate about

that, but it seems like a computational burden to me:

Suppose you have one million records to search for numbers that are then 
rounded. Not
only would you need to compute and store the rounded numbers but also 
the string
representation (or something to effect that you can get a proper decimal

They are in fact rounded, but the internal binary representation can not 
be turned

into the appropriate decimal (and human readable) representation due to the
finite precision.

A number like 1.511 can be rounded to 1.5 and that is _exactly_ 
representable
as binary number. But if, as in your examples, the number requires more 
precision
than is available (remember: only a finite number of digits/bits in 
total, no matter

what the position of the decimal point/comma), the old problem of binary-to-
decimal conversion kicks in again.

Hello Liam,

hm, I have always thought of sqlite3_get_table() as a mere convenience 
function.
From the documentation it seems to be fairly easy to wrap this function 
as well

(some care needs to be taken about the allocated memory, so the Fortran
version would use an argument of type "character(len=*), dimension(:,:), 
pointer"
that the Fortran user should deallocate - no need to call 
sqlite3_free_table()).


Yes, sqlite3_do is a wrapper around sqlite3_exec(). I do not remember why
I chose that particular name - possibly to avoid any potential name 
clash, or

because I found the verb "do" more appropriate ;).

Even if you are not going to use these bindings, thanks for your comments.

I like Arjen's project as it mirrors my design thoughts somewhat.  I 
am however unsure how it can be done in a compiler independent manner 
(I see no such markup in Arjen's work, however, so what am I 
missing?). The Fortran standard does not guarantee any particular 
argument passing mechanism.  It might use pass by reference or value 
or register at its own choosing depending on many factors, including 
optimization settings.  There is no standard way for the application 
programmer to choose. Each compiler vendor provides it's own unique 
method of adjusting calling mechanisms  and many do not by default 
match C.  Some compiler's are now beginning to support standard 
conforming mechanisms (which may not cover all cases still), but that 
will be rare for a year or two. I'll be out of town for the next week, 
hoping for approval to use SQLite in my project.  Without that 
approval, my incenstive will be less.  I do see this as an important 
need however.


Let me first tell you that I was inspired by Al Danial's work on a 
FORTRAN 77 interface for SQLite. I felt however
that with Fortran 95 a more generic interface would be possible and that 
is what I implemented. I have ample experience
with combining C and Fortran routines on a variety of platforms and the 
concerns Gary has are taken care of in

this implementation, though not in the most general way possible:
- I prefer putting the compiler-dependent parts in the C code
- On Windows you need to specify a particular calling convention 
(__stdcall), rather than the default.
 On UNIX and Linux there is no such distinction. I take care of that 
via the macro FTNCALL in csqlite.c
- Various Fortran compilers use different "name mangling" schemes - the 
name of a routine is decorated
 with one and sometimes two underscores or the name is capitalised. 
This is taken care of in the C code

 but not completely.
- There is also the matter of passing the implicit length of strings. 
This is done via the macro INBETWEEN:
 some Fortran compilers put the length directly after the string 
argument, others do it by appending these

 hidden arguments at the end.
- Note that the C routines have interfaces that are compatitble to 
FORTRAN 77 (i.e. no intent, no derived types,

 ...)
- The code should work alright on 64-bits machines (one of the things I 
adopted from Al's work)


Liam,

could you explain in some detail what you find inadequate? I know I 
should add more documentation, but
the functions as implemented ought to be useful enough. I have not much 
experience with building extensive
database applications, so that may show in the implementation. But I 
welcome comments and will revive

the work on this interface.

Regards,

Arjen

Hello Gary,

It is not well documented, I am afraid, and it has a few quirks,
but it could be a nice start.

Re: [sqlite] serious performance problems with indexes

2006-10-27 Thread Arjen Markus

Peter De Rijk wrote:


I have run into a serious performance problem with tables with many rows.
The problem only occurs on tables with an index
The time needed for an insert into a table with an index is dependend on the 
number of rows. I have not formally checked, but from my tests it looks like 
an exponential dependence. This of course means that while sqlite is very 
fast on smaller datasets, it is slow on larger data sets and becomes unusable 
on large datasets (million of rows). The insert behaviour is normal on non 
indexed tables, but obviously queries are a problem then.

Is this index behaviour normal/expected for sqlite, or can this be solved?
 


Peter,
unless I am mistaken, inserting into a table that has an index requires 
the index
to be rebuilt for each insert. Are you inserting multiple rows in a 
single transaction
or not? If you could put them in a single transaction, I think the 
performance

will remain adequate, even for very large tables.

Hi Arjen

Hello Victor,

any specific reason? There are lots of (free) Fortran 90 compilers around,
and unless I am mistaken the Openwatcom compiler supports Fortran 90
(after all, the standard is more than 20 years old).

The good thing is that any FORTRAN 77 that complies to that standard
is also a valid Fortran 90 program, so if you decide to move to Fortran 90
you can do the transition in small steps.

The sample code by Danial is a good attempt to do it in FORTRAN 77,
but it is rather involved due to the limitations of that standard (computers
30 years ago were very different beasts).

I am no expert on SQL, but I think it is likely that BETWEEN does not

Try: Surname between 'A' and 'E' instead (or 'F')

(If it does, there may be a severe interpretation problem - wildcards
introduce some sort of a range themselves, so the bounds are ranges too!)

Title:
Semantic errors in SQL queries: A quite complete list

Abstract:
We investigate classes of SQL queries which are syntactically correct, but 
certainly not intended, no matter for which task the query was written. For 
instance, queries that are contradictory, i.e. always return the empty set, are 
obviously not intended. However, current database management systems (DBMS) 
execute such queries without any warning. In this paper, we give an extensive 
list of conditions that are strong indications of semantic errors. Of course, 
questions like the satisfiability are in general undecidable, but a significant 
subset of SQL queries can actually be checked. We believe that future DBMS will 
perform such checks and that the generated warnings will help to develop 
application programs with fewer bugs in less time. (c) 2005 Elsevier Inc. All

Why not use a separate table with columns like:

- appname - string
- property- string
- intvalue- integer
- stringvalue - string

YOu can select all the properties for a specific application and the
general ones:
  
   SELECT * FROM xxx WHERE appname = 'myapp' OR appname = 'GENERAL';

or some such set-up. No need to use loads of columns. This is what

Older English books on mathematical and physical subjects use a dot that
is
centred on the line, not the period we are now accustomed to, because
that
particular glyph is simply not present on the keyboard. I can think of a
lot 
of other typograhical conventions that have lost the battle against the
relentless keyboard. Oh well, I suppose I am getting old ;).

As for the design decision that Richard mentions in his reply, I quite
agree: it is better to stick to that one radix point than to try and
satisfy all people - I have seen a lot of sorrow and hardship from the
imperfect attempts to do otherwise. (I will just bring in the example
of older versions of MS Excel where a dot or a comma in a file would
make it unusable on a machine with a different regional setting).

A helper function to sort this out would be the solution to go for.

Hello Lloyd,

you mean the sqlite3 command-line utility? Well, if all else fails,
try it with a small script that you can put in a directory within
your path:

---
# Run command-line utility sqlite3
#
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/your/install/dir/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
export PATH=/your/install/dir/bin:$PATH

sqlite3
---

(Store this in a convenient file like "mysqlite" and use:

chmod +x mysqlite

to make it executable)

The environment variables LD_LIBRARY_PATH and PATH are 
changed locally. So as soon as you leave the utility 
and thus the script, you go back to the original environment.

Now you are missing the point :). The solution is not all that simple.
Perhaps the "best" approach is 
to allow for "fuzzy" comparisons. I refer you to
http://ftp.cac.psu.edu/pub/ger/fortran/hdk/eps.f90 (or .for)
for more information and an implementation of an algorithm that has
proven its usefulness.
(Don't take it too lightly: according to the author/transcriber it is
the result of long discussions and
disputes in at least one language community).

Your proposal could be used to set the tolerance for the fuzzy
comparison. Scaling issues are then
taken care of by that algorithm (I should have thought of it before)

Well, I have come across it in many other contexts and there is no
general solution, unfortunately - well, using decimal floating-point
arithmetic might in some cases solve it (at least give more predictable
results, though not always).

What about the scale? I assume that the above accuracy refers to 
the range [value-0.001,value+0.001]. That would fail with
numbers 
smaller than 1/100 - not that uncommon. 

On the other hand a relative accuracy of say 1.0e-4% would fail if you
have numbers around zero: -0.001 could well be approximately 0
or 0.001. 

I think you will need (at least?) two measures of tolerance:
an absolute value and a relative one ...

Again, the implementation of getch and time as _C functions_ is a pure

If I may be so blunt and refer to Fortran and C for a comparison:

- the random function in C has no arguments, it will produce 
  a different result on every call (within the limits of the 
  random number generator that is used). Of course from a   
  mathematical point of view this is a monstrosity ;).
  Functions should return the same values given the same
  arguments.

- functions without arguments in Fortran are presumed 
  to return the same value. The compiler may decide to
  cache that value and _always_ return the same value.
  This is the reason in Fortran (90, ...) random
  numbers are generated via a subroutine, instead of
  a function.

Apart from this distinction, you can also encounter
the situation where one platform (compiler, OS, hardware)
always initialises the random number generator with
the same seed and another will use a seed derived from,
say, the system clock.

I know too little of SQL to say that the standard
defines the random function in this way or that, 
but these are the variations I have seen and my
guess is the standard does not prescribe anything
about it.

I have had weird problems in the past on a Windows platform 
with the deletion and re-creation of files. I have never 
been able to figure out what happened. 

I am not familiar with inner workings of SQLite but I can imagine
that this will not be a problem anymore when you use a 
transaction instead of individual inserts.

Hm, being an engineer (and not having too much experience with database,
I immediately admit), I have always thought it was the other way around:
administrative and financial people designing database systems :).

I rather like the idea Richard is trying to get across. Too often people
have been surprised by such awkward behaviour 5/2 becoming 2 or 5.1*5.1
turning out to be 26.00999 instead of 26.01 and the like.

As for banker's rounding: if I understand it correctly, there are at 
least two slightly different systems - an American and a European one.
That problem should be solved too, if you are going to introduce such
behaviour.

You can find all codes in the sqlite.h include file:

#define SQLITE_RANGE   25   /* 2nd parameter to sqlite3_bind out of

(I posted a message about one or two error codes missing from the online

[sqlite] Handling dates and timestamps via the C API

Hello,

I would like to know how I should handle dates and timestamps

to use one of the forms reserved for dates and timestamps and
the like, but how do I do this via the sqlite3_bind_* procedures?

My Fortran interface does something similar, I have done it that way to
hide
the gory (and platform-dependent) details of passing parameters of the
correct 
type to the SQLite C functions. On Windows I compile SQLite as a DLL -
that
takes care of the stdcall/cdecl issue.

Hm, this mismatch in calling convention could be solved by one or two
little wrapper
functions, couldn't it? I am not very familiar with .NET, so I could be
all wrong.

Igor,

you seem to have answered a question I wanted to pose: 
a program I wrote that inserts some 100 rows consisting of no more than
four
columns takes several seconds, almost all time spent in the INSERT
statement.

I will try to do this with a transaction.

Hello Hamid,

that sounds great. Right now I have solved most obvious bugs,
which of course leaves the stupid ones and the not-so-obvious ones.

One big issue is the lack of proper documentation ;).
I will send you what I have right now via a private mail.

As others have replied, the version(s) where you use count() return(s)
only
one record. And that can be seen from the sQL statement all by itself.
I do not think things can be faster than that: only one record
that will actually be returned to the calling program.

I get the very same result, apparently awk on Sun does not
like the mkopcodeh.awk script.

It does not like the sub command and it does not like:

  nopush[i] = nopush[i] + (2^j)


I tried with "nawk" instead: this works without any 
problem!

[sqlite] FYI: Fortran interface to SQLite

2005-10-25 Thread Arjen Markus
Hello,

my (almost) first experience with SQLite was the sample
code that Al Danial published to show how to use SQLite
in a FORTRAN program.

I was inspired by his work to develop a more comprehensive
interface, this time in Fortran 90/95. I am pleased to 
say that this was fairly easy to do and that it is 
nearing a stage where I dare release it in the wild.

The idea:
- Provide a library that hides as much as possible 
  the detail of Fortran-C interfacing
- Provide low-level routines for flexibility and 
  some high-level routines for common tasks and
  ease of use.

It has been tested on Windows with Compaq Visual Fortran
and MS VC/C++ only so far, but it should not be
a problem to get to work with other common 
compiler combinations.

Anyone who is interested, just drop a note.

Regards,

Arjen

I know that the GNU compilers have a similar utility - I just have never
used either (being lazy, I mostly rely on the compiler to provide the
.lib file - that does require the use of non-standard keywords, but
you can hide those).

Anyway, the header file is needed, as you say.

[sqlite] Zip file with prebuilt DLL incomplete

2005-10-20 Thread Arjen Markus
Hello,

I downloaded the sqlitedll-3_2_7.zip file the other day 
to do some initial experiments with SQLite, but it turns
out that this zip-file only contains the DLL itself and
the definitions file. 

If I understand it correctly, it is possible to link
against the DLL using that definition file, but it is
more common to use the import library. 

But even so, the sqlite3.h header file is missing.
So the zip-file as such is not useable.

Kind regards,

Arjen Markus
