Feature request: Dynamically execute SQL from shell
I don't think I'm making any mistake.
I clearly stated in the title that I'm talking about the shell.

SQLite3 may be the name of the library (the SQL engine) but it also happens to be the official name of the compiled shell.

Don't you get `sqlite3[.exe]` when you compile?

It's also the name used for the shell inside the official pre-compiled binaries:

For example, [https://www.sqlite.org/2020/sqlite-tools-win32-x86-3310100.zip](https://www.sqlite.org/2020/sqlite-tools-win32-x86-3310100.zip)

At any rate, how does that invalidate my previous statement (about removing functionality from the shell to the point of not needing it anymore as the same functionality can be had from scripting)?
