       The SQLite driver is the default DBMI backend.

Creating a SQLite database

       GRASS  is  automatically  creating  the SQLite database if it is not yet existing when the
       first table is created in the SQLite database. It is sufficient to define  the  connection
       (see next step).

Connecting GRASS to SQLite

       The  database name ’sqlite.db’ is at user’s choice.  Also the file storage location can be
       freely chosen. If the database does not exist,  it  will  be  automatically  created  when
       database content is created:
       # example for storing DB in mapset directory (keep single quotes):
       db.connect driver=sqlite database=’$GISDBASE/$LOCATION_NAME/$MAPSET/sqlite/sqlite.db’
       db.connect -p

Supported SQL commands

       All  SQL  commands  supported  by  SQLite  (for  limitations, see SQLite help page: SQL As
       Understood By SQLite and Unsupported SQL).

Operators available in conditions

       All SQL operators supported by SQLite.

Browsing table data in DB

       A convenient SQLite front-end is sqlitebrowser.  To open  a  DB  file  stored  within  the
       current mapset, the following way is suggested (corresponds to above database connection):
       # fetch GRASS variables as shell environment variables:
       eval `g.gisenv`
       # use double quotes:
       sqlitebrowser "$GISDBASE/$LOCATION_NAME/$MAPSET"/sqlite/sqlite.db
