SQLite Forum

I can dream up some uses where something like that would be nice to have. Maybe you have a returning clause on a delete query and want the output ordered by a column alphabetically or something. It wouldn't delete the rows in that order (or at least, it would not specifically try to); just change how you see the returned rows.

Given that you can just sort the output yourself outside of SQLite it's hardly important, but occasionally it would be nice.
