** This file defines the interface to the database backend (Dbbe).
** The database backend is designed to be as general as possible
** so that it can easily be replaced by a different backend.
** This library was originally designed to support the following
** backends: GDBM, NDBM, SDBM, Berkeley DB.

** The database backend supports two opaque structures.  A Dbbe is
** a context for the entire set of tables forming a complete
** database.  A DbbeCursor is a pointer into a single single table.
** Note that at this level, the term "table" can mean either an
** SQL table or an SQL index.  In this module, a table stores a
** single arbitrary-length key and corresponding arbitrary-length
** data.  The differences between tables and indices, and the
** segregation of data into various fields or columns is handled
** by software at higher layers.
** The DbbeCursor structure holds some state information, such as
** the key and data from the last retrieval.  For this reason, 
** the backend must allow the creation of multiple independent
** DbbeCursor structures for each table in the database.
typedef struct Dbbe Dbbe;
typedef struct DbbeCursor DbbeCursor;
typedef struct DbbeMethods DbbeMethods;

** Open a complete database.
** If the database name begins with "gdbm:" the GDBM driver is used.
** If the name begins with "memory:" the in-memory driver is used.
** The default driver is GDBM.
Dbbe *sqliteDbbeOpen(const char *zName, int write, int create, char **pzErr);

** Each of the various SQLite backends defines a set of methods for
** accessing the database.  Pointers to the methods are contained in
** an instance of the following structure.  A pointer to a static instance
** of this structure is assigned to the Dbbe structure that sqlileDbbeOpen
** returns.

  ** Create the file if it doesn't already exist and writeable!=0.  zName
  ** is the base name of the file to be opened.  This routine will add
  ** an appropriate path and extension to the filename to locate the 
  ** actual file.
  ** The keyType parameter is TRUE if this table will only be accessed
  ** using integer keys.  This parameter allows the database backend to
  ** use a faster algorithm for the special case of integer keys, if it
  ** wants to.
  ** If zName is 0 or "", then a temporary file is created that
  ** will be deleted when closed.

** this structure in any way other than the read the method pointers
** in Dbbe.x.
