<h1 align="center">SAR - SQLite Archiver</h1>

This repository contains sources for a proof-of-concept "SQLite Archiver"
program.  This program (named "sar") operates much like "zip", except that
the compressed archive it builds is stored in an SQLite database instead
of a ZIP archive.

The motivation for this is to see how much larger an SQLite database file
is compared to a ZIP archive containing the same content.  The answer depends
on the filenames, but 2% seems to be a reasonable guess.  In other words,
storing files as compressed blobs in an SQLite database file results in a 
file that is only about 2% larger than storing those same files in a ZIP
archive using the same compression.
