    ADO.NET 2.0 SQLite Data Provider<br />
    Version 1.0.6 - Feb 28, 2005<br />
    Written by Robert Simpson (<a href=""></a>)<br />
    Released to the public domain, use at your own risk!<br />
    <br />
    This provider was written and verified using the Visual Studio 2005 November and
    December CTP's.<br />
    <br />
    The latest version can be downloaded <a href="">here</a>
    <br />
    <br />

    <b>Features:</b><br />
      <li>DbProviderFactory support, just add the XML below at the machine.config and/or app.config level. </li>
      <li>Full support for ATTACH'ed databases.&nbsp; Exposed as <i>Catalogs</i> in the
        schema.&nbsp; When cloning a connection, all attached databases are automatically
        re-attached to the new connection.</li>
      <li>DbConnection.GetSchema(...) support includes the <i>MetaDataCollections</i>, <i>
        DataSourceInformation</i>, <i>Columns</i>, <i>Tables</i>, <i>Views</i>, <i>Catalogs</i>
        and <i>Indexes</i> keywords.</li>
      <li>Enhanced DbDataReader.GetSchemaTable() functionality returns catalog, namespace
        and detailed schema information even for complex queries.</li>
      <li>Named and unnamed parameters.</li>
      <li>Full UTF-8 and UTF-16 support.</li>
      <li>Multiple simultaneous DataReaders (one DataReader per Command however).</li>
      <li>Full support for user-defined scalar and aggregate functions, encapsulated into
        easy-to-use base class in which only a couple of overrides are necessary to implement
        new SQL functions.</li>
      <li>Full support for user-defined collating sequences, every bit as simple to implement
        as user-defined functions and uses the same base class.</li></ul>
    In order to use the SQLiteFactory and have the SQLite data provider enumerated in
    the DbProviderFactories methods, you must add the following segment into either
    your application's app.config or the system's machine.config located in the %SystemRoot%\Microsoft.Net\Framework\v2.xxxx\Config
    folder:<br />
    <br />
      &lt;add name="SQLite Data Provider" invariant="System.Data.SQLite" support="3F" description=".Net Framework Data Provider for SQLite" type="System.Data.SQLite.SQLiteFactory, System.Data.SQLite" /&gt;
    <br />
    <b>Development Notes Regarding the SQLite 3 Source Code<br />
    </b>*** At this time, the necessary changes to the DLL to support Windows CE have
    not been completed.&nbsp; All function calls that return or pass a 64-bit value
    have been wrapped, but the necessary OS changes have not been finished.<br />
    <br />
      Steps for merging the sqlite3 core codebase:</p>
      <li>Download the latest sqlite3 source from <a href=""></a></li>
      <li>Extract the source code to the <b>SQLite.Interop\src</b> directory of this project</li>
      <li>Open the <b>src\select.c</b> file.</li>
      <li>Add <b>#include "../interop.h" </b>to the top of the file where the other include's
      <li>Scroll down the <b>select.c</b> file to around line <b>748</b>.&nbsp; Change the name of the function <b>static void generateColumnNames </b>to
    <b>static void _generateColumnNames</b> (<i>note the underscore in front of the name</i>).</li>
      <li>Compile it.</li>
      <b>Version History<br />
        1.06 - Feb 28, 2005<br />
      <li>Speed-ups to SQLiteDataReader.&nbsp; It was interop'ing every time it tried to
        fetch a field due to a logic error.</li>
      <li>Changed/Added some code to SQLiteConvert's internal DbType, Type and TypeAffinity
      <li>Fixed the SQLiteDataReader to obey the flags set in the optional CommandBehavior
        flag from SQLiteCommand.ExecuteReader().</li>
		<li>Changed the default page size to 1024 to reflect the defaults of 
		SQLite.&nbsp; Ignores the &quot;Page Size&quot; connection string option for 
		memory databases, as tests revealed that changing it resulted in memory 
		corruption errors.</li>
      <li>Performance enhancements to the SQLiteCommand and SQLiteStatement classes which
        reduced the 100,000 row insert execution time as well as the various Function execution
        times significantly.</li>
      <br />
        1.05 - Feb 25, 2005</b>
      <li>Fixed the SQLite3 C# class step/reset functions to accomodate schema changes
        that invalidate a prepared statement.&nbsp; Statements are recompiled transparently.</li>
      <li>Moved all native DLL declarations to an UnsafeNativeMethods class.</li>
      <li>Split several classes into their own modules for readability.</li>
      <li>Renamed many internal variables, reviewed access to variables marked as internal
        and altered their protection levels accordingly.</li>
      <li>Due to the presence of the altered sqlite3 codebase and so many added interop
        functions, I decided to rename the sqlite3 C project and the DLL to SQLite.Interop.DLL.&nbsp;
        This is the same core sqlite3 codebase but designed specifically for this
        ADO.NET provider.&nbsp; This eliminates any possibility of someone dropping another
        build of sqlite3.dll into the system and rendering the provider inoperable.&nbsp;
        In the future if the folks at finally introduce a method of retrieving
        column usage for an arbitrary prepared statement, I'll retool this library to be
        a lightweight function call wrapper around the core binary distribution.</li>
      <li>Added [SuppressUnmanagedCodeSecurity] attribute to the UnsafeNativeMethods class
        which brings VS2005 November CTP execution speeds inline with the December CTP.</li>
		<li>Added a <b>bin</b> directory to the project root where pre-compiled 
		binaries can be found.</li>
		<li>Added a <b>doc</b> directory where preliminary documentation on the 
		class library can be found.</li>
		<li>Documented a lot more of the classes internally.</li>
        <br />
        1.04 - Feb 24, 2005</b>
      <li>Removed the SQLiteContext class and revamped the way UserFunctions work to simplify
        the imlementation.</li>
      <li>Fixed a counting bug in the TestCases class, specifically in the function tests
        where I wasn't resetting the counter and it was consequently reporting intrinsic
        and raw select calls as being much much faster than they actually were.&nbsp; The
        numbers are now much closer to what I expected for performance, with .NET user-functions
        still being the slowest, but only by a small margin.</li>
      <li>Small performance tweaks to SQLiteDataReader.</li>
      <li>Added PageSize to the SQLiteConnectionStringBuilder and subsequently to the SQLiteConnection</li>
      <li>Added a PRAGMA encoding=XXX execution statement to the SQLiteConnection after
        opening a connection.</li>
        1.03 - Feb 23, 2005</b>
      <li>Fixed up SQLiteCommandBuilder to correct implementation errors, which resulted
        in an enormous performance boost in the InsertMany test.&nbsp;&nbsp; 10,000 row
        insert that executed in 1500ms now executes in 500ms.</li>
      <li>Fixed several errors in the SQLite3_UTF16 class.&nbsp; ToString() was working
        incorrectly and the Open() method failed to register user defined functions and
      <li>Fixed a bug in SQLiteCommand.ClearCommands() whereby only the first statement
        was being properly cleaned up.</li>
      <li>Fixed a bug in SQLiteDataReader whereby calling NextResult() would not properly
        reset the previously-executed command in the sequence.</li>
      <li>Added an InsertManyWithIdentityFetch test, which appends a select clause to populate
        the ID of the last inserted row into the InsertCommand, demonstrating ADO.NET's
        ability to auto-fetch identity columns on insert.</li>
        1.02 - Feb 21, 2005</b></p>
      <li>Tweaks to the xxx_interop functions that return char *'s, so they also return
        the length.&nbsp; Saves an interop call to get the UTF-8 string length during conversion
        to a .NET string.</li>
      <li>Reworked the whole interop.c thing into interop.h and reduced the code required
        to merge the main sqlite3 codebase.</li>
      <li>Added support for user-defined collations.</li>
