SQLITE3_ENABLE_LOAD_EXTENSION(3)                      Library Functions Manual

     sqlite3_enable_load_extension - Enable Or Disable Extension Loading

     sqlite3_enable_load_extension(sqlite3 *db, int onoff);

     So as not to open security holes in older applications that are
     unprepared to deal with extension loading, and as a means of disabling
     extension loading while evaluating user-entered SQL, the following API is
     provided to turn the sqlite3_load_extension() mechanism on and off.

     Extension loading is off by default.  Call the
     sqlite3_enable_load_extension() routine with onoff==1 to turn extension
     loading on and call it with onoff==0 to turn it back off again.

     This interface enables or disables both the C-API
     sqlite3_load_extension() and the SQL function load_extension().  Use
     sqlite3_db_config(db,SQLITE_DBCONFIG_ENABLE_LOAD_EXTENSION,..) to enable
     or disable only the C-API.

     Security warning: It is recommended that extension loading be disabled
     using the SQLITE_DBCONFIG_ENABLE_LOAD_EXTENSION method rather than this
     interface, so the load_extension() SQL function remains disabled.  This
     will prevent SQL injections from giving attackers access to extension
     loading capabilities.
