tdbc::sqlite3::connection create db fileName ?-option value...?
The tdbc::sqlite3 driver provides a database interface that conforms to Tcl DataBase Connectivity (TDBC) and allows a Tcl script to connect to a SQLite3 database. It is also provided as a worked example of how to write a database driver in Tcl, so that driver authors have a starting point for further development.
Connection to a SQLite3 database is established by invoking tdbc::sqlite3::connection create, passing it a string to be used as the connection handle followed by the file name of the database. The side effect of tdbc::sqlite3::connection create is to create a new database connection.. As an alternative, tdbc::sqlite::connection new may be used to create a database connection with an automatically assigned name. The return value from tdbc::sqlite::connection new is the name that was chosen for the connection handle. See tdbc::connection(n) for the details of how to use the connection to manipulate a database.
The standard configuration options -encoding, -isolation, -readonly and -timeout are all recognized, both on tdbc::sqlite3::connection create and on the configure method of the resulting connection.
Since the encoding of a SQLite3 database is always well known, the -encoding option accepts only utf-8 as an encoding and always returns utf-8 for an encoding. The actual encoding may be set using a SQLite3 PRAGMA statement when creating a new database.
Only the isolation levels readuncommitted and serializable are implemented. Other isolation levels are promoted to serializable.
