Most of my development is taking place on my gaming PC with Windows XP Professional (Although I also work a bit on Fedora Linux)
My search led met to Sqlite
Sqlite is :
- Free as in the public domain which means that everybody can use and modify it.
- Small, very small. The binary is about 427KB on my PC, unzipped
- Fast, Faster than other popular client/server database engines for most common operations.
- SQL support although some features are not supported.
- Cross-Platform: Linux (unix), MacOSX, OS/2, Win32 and WinCE are supported out of the box
- Accessible through C++
- Used in one way or another by well known companies
I downloaded the Windows command-line version and started it up.
SQLite version 3.5.4Figuring out how to create a database was very easy using the Sqlite language syntax as on the Sqlite website
Enter ".help" for instructions
sqlite> ATTACH DATABASE 'myDB.fl' AS myDB;That command created a database for me and I was able to see where it is located by entering .databases at the Sqlite command prompt.
seq name file
--- ---- ---------------------
2 myDB C:\sqlite-3_5_4\myDB.fl
So far I like Sqlite allot. It's easy to use and it just simply works.
