<h3>What Is SQLite?</h3>

<p>SQLite is a C-language library that implements a
[footprint|small],
[faster than the filesystem|fast],
[self-contained], 
[high-reliability],
[full-featured SQL|full-featured],
SQL database engine.
SQLite is the [most used] database engine in the world.
SQLite is built into all mobile phones and most computers and
comes bundled inside countless other applications that people
use every day.
<a href="about.html">More Information...</a>

<p>
The SQLite [file format] is stable, cross-platform, and
backwards compatible and the developers pledge to keep it
that way through at least the year 2050.  SQLite database
files are commonly used as containers to transfer rich 
content between systems
[affshort|&#91;1&#93;]
[SQLAR|&#91;2&#93;]
[appformat|&#91;3&#93;]
and as a long-term archival format 
for data
[recommended storage format|&#91;4&#93;].
There are over 1 trillion (1e12)
SQLite databases in active use
[most used|&#91;5&#93;].

<p>
SQLite [https://sqlite.org/src|source code]
is in the [public-domain] and is free to 
everyone to use for any purpose.
