These integer constants are opcodes for the xFileControl method of the sqlite3_io_methods object and for the sqlite3_file_control() interface.

  • The EXPERIMENTAL SQLITE_FCNTL_EXTERNAL_READER opcode is used to detect whether or not there is a database client in another process with a wal-mode transaction open on the database or not. It is only available on unix.The (void*) argument passed with this file-control should be a pointer to a value of type (int). The integer value is set to 1 if the database is a wal mode database and there exists at least one client in another process that currently has an SQL transaction open on the database. It is set to 0 if the database is not a wal-mode db, or if there is no such connection in any other process. This opcode cannot be used to detect transactions opened by clients within the current process, only within other processes.

  • Used by the cksmvfs VFS module only.
