SQLITE3_INITIALIZE(3)      Library Functions Manual      SQLITE3_INITIALIZE(3)

     sqlite3_initialize, sqlite3_shutdown, sqlite3_os_init, sqlite3_os_end -
     initialize the SQLite library

     #include <sqlite3.h>





     The sqlite3_initialize() routine initializes the SQLite library.  The
     sqlite3_shutdown() routine deallocates any resources that were allocated
     by sqlite3_initialize().  These routines are designed to aid in process
     initialization and shutdown on embedded systems.  Workstation
     applications using SQLite normally do not need to invoke either of these

     A call to sqlite3_initialize() is an "effective" call if it is the first
     time sqlite3_initialize() is invoked during the lifetime of the process,
     or if it is the first time sqlite3_initialize() is invoked following a
     call to sqlite3_shutdown().  Only an effective call of
     sqlite3_initialize() does any initialization.  All other calls are
     harmless no-ops.

     A call to sqlite3_shutdown() is an "effective" call if it is the first
     call to sqlite3_shutdown() since the last sqlite3_initialize().  Only an
     effective call to sqlite3_shutdown() does any deinitialization.  All
     other valid calls to sqlite3_shutdown() are harmless no-ops.

     The sqlite3_initialize() interface is threadsafe, but sqlite3_shutdown()
     is not.  The sqlite3_shutdown() interface must only be called from a
     single thread.  All open database connections must be closed and all
     other SQLite resources must be deallocated prior to invoking

     Among other things, sqlite3_initialize() will invoke sqlite3_os_init().
     Similarly, sqlite3_shutdown() will invoke sqlite3_os_end().

     The sqlite3_initialize() routine returns SQLITE_OK on success.  If for
     some reason, sqlite3_initialize() is unable to initialize the library
     (perhaps it is unable to allocate a needed resource such as a mutex) it
     returns an error code other than SQLITE_OK.

     The sqlite3_initialize() routine is called internally by many other
     SQLite interfaces so that an application usually does not need to invoke
     sqlite3_initialize() directly.  For example, sqlite3_open() calls
     sqlite3_initialize() so the SQLite library will be automatically
     initialized when sqlite3_open() is called if it has not be initialized
     already.  However, if SQLite is compiled with the SQLITE_OMIT_AUTOINIT
     compile-time option, then the automatic calls to sqlite3_initialize() are
     omitted and the application must call sqlite3_initialize() directly prior
     to using any other SQLite interface.  For maximum portability, it is
     recommended that applications always invoke sqlite3_initialize() directly
     prior to using any other SQLite interface.  Future releases of SQLite may
     require this.  In other words, the behavior exhibited when SQLite is
     compiled with SQLITE_OMIT_AUTOINIT might become the default behavior in
     some future release of SQLite.

     The sqlite3_os_init() routine does operating-system specific
     initialization of the SQLite library.  The sqlite3_os_end() routine
     undoes the effect of sqlite3_os_init().  Typical tasks performed by these
     routines include allocation or deallocation of static resources,
     initialization of global variables, setting up a default sqlite3_vfs
     module, or setting up a default configuration using sqlite3_config().
     The application should never invoke either sqlite3_os_init() or
     sqlite3_os_end() directly.  The application should only invoke
     sqlite3_initialize() and sqlite3_shutdown().  The sqlite3_os_init()
     interface is called automatically by sqlite3_initialize() and
     sqlite3_os_end() is called by sqlite3_shutdown().  Appropriate
     implementations for sqlite3_os_init() and sqlite3_os_end() are built into
     SQLite when it is compiled for Unix, Windows, or OS/2.  When built for
     other platforms (using the SQLITE_OS_OTHER=1 compile-time option) the
     application must supply a suitable implementation for sqlite3_os_init()
     and sqlite3_os_end().  An application-supplied implementation of
     sqlite3_os_init() or sqlite3_os_end() must return SQLITE_OK on success
     and some other error code upon failure.
