SQLITE3_SERIALIZE(3) Library Functions Manual SQLITE3_SERIALIZE(3) NAME sqlite3_serialize - Serialize a database SYNOPSIS unsigned char * sqlite3_serialize(sqlite3 *db, const char *zSchema, sqlite3_int64 *piSize, unsigned int mFlags ); DESCRIPTION The sqlite3_serialize(D,S,P,F) interface returns a pointer to memory that is a serialization of the S database on database connection D. If P is not a NULL pointer, then the size of the database in bytes is written into *P. For an ordinary on-disk database file, the serialization is just a copy of the disk file. For an in-memory database or a "TEMP" database, the serialization is the same sequence of bytes which would be written to disk if that database where backed up to disk. The usual case is that sqlite3_serialize() copies the serialization of the database into memory obtained from sqlite3_malloc64() and returns a pointer to that memory. The caller is responsible for freeing the returned value to avoid a memory leak. However, if the F argument contains the SQLITE_SERIALIZE_NOCOPY bit, then no memory allocations are made, and the sqlite3_serialize() function will return a pointer to the contiguous memory representation of the database that SQLite is currently using for that database, or NULL if the no such contiguous memory representation of the database exists. A contiguous memory representation of the database will usually only exist if there has been a prior call to sqlite3_deserialize(D,S,...) with the same values of D and S. The size of the database is written into *P even if the SQLITE_SERIALIZE_NOCOPY bit is set but no contiguous copy of the database exists. A call to sqlite3_serialize(D,S,P,F) might return NULL even if the SQLITE_SERIALIZE_NOCOPY bit is omitted from argument F if a memory allocation error occurs. This interface is only available if SQLite is compiled with the SQLITE_ENABLE_DESERIALIZE option. SEE ALSO sqlite3(3), sqlite3_malloc(3) NetBSD 8.99.34 December 19, 2018 NetBSD 8.99.34
