SQLITE3_SNAPSHOT(3)        Library Functions Manual        SQLITE3_SNAPSHOT(3)

NAME
     sqlite3_snapshot - Database Snapshot

SYNOPSIS
     typedef struct sqlite3_snapshot { unsigned char hidden[48]; }
     sqlite3_snapshot;

DESCRIPTION
     An instance of the snapshot object records the state of a WAL mode
     database for some specific point in history.

     In WAL mode, multiple database connections that are open on the same
     database file can each be reading a different historical version of the
     database file.  When a database connection begins a read transaction,
     that connection sees an unchanging copy of the database as it existed for
     the point in time when the transaction first started.  Subsequent changes
     to the database from other connections are not seen by the reader until a
     new read transaction is started.

     The sqlite3_snapshot object records state information about an historical
     version of the database file so that it is possible to later open a new
     read transaction that sees that historical version of the database rather
     than the most recent version.

     The constructor for this object is sqlite3_snapshot_get().  The
     sqlite3_snapshot_open() method causes a fresh read transaction to refer
     to an historical snapshot (if possible).  The destructor for
     sqlite3_snapshot objects is sqlite3_snapshot_free().
