ClubFavolosa's SQLite tutor

This pages assumes that you have Linux or Mac OSX and knowledge of the so called Borne Again SHell (BASH). Windows users need some knowledge of cmd.exe and perhaps batchfiles (text files with extension '.bat'). Everybody who did not do so yet needs to download SQLite
and type on the command line:


sqlite -help
Usage: sqlite [OPTIONS] FILENAME [SQL]
FILENAME is the name of an SQLite database. A new database is created
if the file does not previously exist.

   -help                show this message
