      <p>
        The CREATE VIEW command assigns a name to a pre-packaged <a href="lang_select.html">
          SELECT</a> statement. Once the view is created, it can be used in the FROM clause
        of another SELECT in place of a table name. 
      </p>
      <p>
        If the "TEMP" or "TEMPORARY" keyword occurs in between "CREATE" and "VIEW" then
        the view that is created is only visible to the process that opened the database
        and is automatically deleted when the database is closed.</p>
      <p>
        If a &lt;database-name&gt; is specified, then the view is created in the named database.
        It is an error to specify both a &lt;database-name&gt; and the TEMP keyword, unless
        the &lt;database-name&gt; is "temp". If no database name is specified, and the TEMP
        keyword is not present, the table is created in the main database.</p>
      <p>
        You cannot COPY, DELETE, INSERT or UPDATE a view. Views are read-only in SQLite.
        However, in many cases you can use a <a href="lang_createtrigger.html">TRIGGER</a>
        on the view to accomplish the same thing. Views are removed with the <a href="lang_dropview.html">
          DROP VIEW</a> command.</p>
