object itself.

<blockquote>
<dl>
<dt><b>argc = 1 <br> argv[0] &ne; NULL</b>
<dd><p>
The single row with rowid or PRIMARY KEY equal to argv[0] is deleted. 
No insert occurs.

<dt><b>argc &gt; 1 <br> argv[0] = NULL</b>
<dd><p>
A new row is inserted with column values taken from
argv[2] and following.  In a rowid virtual table, if argv[1] is an SQL NULL,
then a new unique rowid is generated automatically.  The argv[1] will be NULL
for a [WITHOUT ROWID virtual table], in which case the implementation should
take the PRIMARY KEY value from the appropriate column in argv[2] and following.

<dt><b>argc &gt; 1 <br> argv[0] &ne; NULL <br> argv[0] = argv[1]</b>
<dd><p>

The row with rowid or PRIMARY KEY argv[0] is updated with new values 
in argv[2] and following parameters.

<dt><b>argc &gt; 1 <br> argv[0] &ne; NULL <br> argv[0] &ne; argv[1]</b>


<dd><p> The row with rowid or PRIMARY KEY argv[0] is updated with 
the rowid or PRIMARY KEY in argv[1] 
and new values in argv[2] and following parameters. This will occur 
when an SQL statement updates a rowid, as in the statement:
<blockquote>
   [UPDATE] table SET rowid=rowid+1 WHERE ...;
