#define SQLITE_DBCONFIG_MAINDBNAME            1000 /* const char* */
#define SQLITE_DBCONFIG_LOOKASIDE             1001 /* void* int int */
#define SQLITE_DBCONFIG_ENABLE_FKEY           1002 /* int int* */
#define SQLITE_DBCONFIG_ENABLE_TRIGGER        1003 /* int int* */

#define SQLITE_DBCONFIG_ENABLE_LOAD_EXTENSION 1005 /* int int* */

These constants are the available integer configuration options that can be passed as the second argument to the sqlite3_db_config() interface.

New configuration options may be added in future releases of SQLite. Existing configuration options might be discontinued. Applications should check the return code from sqlite3_db_config() to make sure that the call worked. The sqlite3_db_config() interface will return a non-zero error code if a discontinued or unsupported configuration option is invoked.

SQLITE_DBCONFIG_LOOKASIDE
This option takes three additional arguments that determine the lookaside memory allocator configuration for the database connection. The first argument (the third parameter to sqlite3_db_config() is a pointer to a memory buffer to use for lookaside memory. The first argument after the SQLITE_DBCONFIG_LOOKASIDE verb may be NULL in which case SQLite will allocate the lookaside buffer itself using sqlite3_malloc(). The second argument is the size of each lookaside buffer slot. The third argument is the number of slots. The size of the buffer in the first argument must be greater than or equal to the product of the second and third arguments. The buffer must be aligned to an 8-byte boundary. If the second argument to SQLITE_DBCONFIG_LOOKASIDE is not a multiple of 8, it is internally rounded down to the next smaller multiple of 8. The lookaside memory configuration for a database connection can only be changed when that connection is not currently using lookaside memory, or in other words when the "current value" returned by sqlite3_db_status(D,SQLITE_CONFIG_LOOKASIDE,...) is zero. Any attempt to change the lookaside memory configuration when lookaside memory is in use leaves the configuration unchanged and returns SQLITE_BUSY.

SQLITE_DBCONFIG_ENABLE_FKEY
This option is used to enable or disable the enforcement of foreign key constraints. There should be two additional arguments. The first argument is an integer which is 0 to disable FK enforcement, positive to enable FK enforcement or negative to leave FK enforcement unchanged. The second parameter is a pointer to an integer into which is written 0 or 1 to indicate whether FK enforcement is off or on following this call. The second parameter may be a NULL pointer, in which case the FK enforcement setting is not reported back.

SQLITE_DBCONFIG_ENABLE_TRIGGER
This option is used to enable or disable triggers. There should be two additional arguments. The first argument is an integer which is 0 to disable triggers, positive to enable triggers or negative to leave the setting unchanged. The second parameter is a pointer to an integer into which is written 0 or 1 to indicate whether triggers are disabled or enabled following this call. The second parameter may be a NULL pointer, in which case the trigger setting is not reported back.

SQLITE_DBCONFIG_ENABLE_FTS3_TOKENIZER
This option is used to enable or disable the two-argument version of the fts3_tokenizer() function which is part of the FTS3 full-text search engine extension. There should be two additional arguments. The first argument is an integer which is 0 to disable fts3_tokenizer() or positive to enable fts3_tokenizer() or negative to leave the setting unchanged. The second parameter is a pointer to an integer into which is written 0 or 1 to indicate whether fts3_tokenizer is disabled or enabled following this call. The second parameter may be a NULL pointer, in which case the new setting is not reported back.

SQLITE_DBCONFIG_ENABLE_LOAD_EXTENSION
This option is used to enable or disable the sqlite3_load_extension() interface independently of the load_extension() SQL function. The sqlite3_enable_load_extension() API enables or disables both the C-API sqlite3_load_extension() and the SQL function load_extension(). There should be two additional arguments. When the first argument to this interface is 1, then only the C-API is enabled and the SQL function remains disabled. If the first argument to this interface is 0, then both the C-API and the SQL function are disabled. If the first argument is -1, then no changes are made to state of either the C-API or the SQL function. The second parameter is a pointer to an integer into which is written 0 or 1 to indicate whether sqlite3_load_extension() interface is disabled or enabled following this call. The second parameter may be a NULL pointer, in which case the new setting is not reported back.

SQLITE_DBCONFIG_MAINDBNAME
This option is used to change the name of the "main" database schema. The sole argument is a pointer to a constant UTF8 string which will become the new schema name in place of "main". SQLite does not make a copy of the new main schema name string, so the application must ensure that the argument passed into this DBCONFIG option is unchanged until after the database connection closes.
