when using sqlite3 in shell, to see a table with headers, we can use .mode to try different views of the table in console. ‚ÄčIs it possible to execute these commands through a c++ console app we can get the same view as we use sqlite3 in shell?
e.g. 	.mode table
	 select * from tbl1;

You have a few options to accomplish this. One would be to run the SQLite CLI shell in a child process with I/O redirection to drive its input and cause its output to reach your c++ console app's standard output. Another would be to incorporate into your app the same code from shell.c that produces the styles of output you like.

Thanks. Meanwhile, I'd appreciate if you demonstrate an example of one these solutions in a simple c++ function to display a table in box mode.
