Hi Ivan,

While I'm sure Trevor will jump in with comments on
his excellent libDatabase, I thought I'd mention the
following link to the SQLite.org WIKI:
<http://www.sqlite.org/cvstrac/wiki?p=InformationSchema>

Basically, it shows how you can create a VIEW with the
database schema information, so you wouldn't need the
PRAGMA command.

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.
