Implements a large subset of SQL92.
A complete database (with multiple tables and indices) is stored in a single disk file.
Atomic commit and rollback protect data integrity.
Small memory footprint: less than 20K lines of C code.
Four times faster than PostgreSQL. Twice as fast as SQLite 1.0.
Very simple C/C++ interface requires the use of only three functions and one opaque structure.
TCL bindings included.
A TCL-based test suite provides near 100% code coverage.
Self-contained: no external dependencies.
Built and tested under Linux and Win2K.
Sources are uncopyrighted. Use for any purpose.
The SQLite source code is 35% comment. These comments are another important source of information.
The author, D. Richard Hipp, is a computer science Ph.D. who knows his stuff. This is not green software, it is well designed and tested. It was first released in May 2000 and is very actively updated and supported.
Thanks for listening.
