This information is obsolete. You are looking at the CVSTrac source management system display for SQLite that was replaced by Fossil on 2009-08-11. The information shown here has not been updated since that cut-over. These pages are retained for historical reference only.

the sqlite command-line utility (sensibly) links against readline if it is present. Readline is licensed under the GPL.

Folk who wish to distribute their version of the sqlite utility under a license other than GPL may want to consider using the BSD libedit http://sourceforge.net/projects/libedit/ and read the thread starting http://sources.redhat.com/ml/guile/1999-02/msg00210.html where the guile (lisp library) folk deal with a similar issue.
