Just recently I saw that sqlite has an built-in archiver. I gave it a try and got an error when adding a big (>~700MB) file (platform was a recent Win10, executable from original sqlite download page): ``` > sqlite3 tst.sqlar SQLite version 3.36.0 2021-06-18 18:36:39 Enter ".help" for usage hints. sqlite> .ar -c --verbose C:/Temp/gnuSource.fossil C:/Temp/gnuSource.fossil ERROR: out of memory ``` Adding a much bigger file (~7GB), things got worse. The command returns immediately (no error message), but nothing is added to the archive. Under Linux (self build executable, a bit older than the WinExe) there is no problem with ~700MB files. But a 2GB file gives: ``` > sqlite3 tst.sqlar SQLite version 3.31.1 2020-01-27 19:55:54 Enter ".help" for usage hints. sqlite> .ar -c --verbose fossilRepos.tar.gz fossilRepos.tar.gz ERROR: string or blob too big ``` Question: is the sqlite-archive not designated to work with bigger files?
