       <br>PRAGMA legacy_file_format = <i>ON | OFF</i></b></p>
    <p>This pragma sets or queries the value of the legacy_file_format
    flag.  When this flag is on, new SQLite databases are created in
    a file format that is readable and writable by all versions of
    SQLite going back to 3.0.0.  When the flag is off, new databases
    are created using the latest file format which might not be
    readable or writable by older versions of SQLite.</p>






    <p>This flag only affects newly created databases.  It has no
    effect on databases that already exist.</p>

    <p>When the pragma is issued with no argument, it returns the
    setting of the flag.  This pragma does <u>not</u> tell which
    file format the current database is using.  It tells what format
    will be used by any newly created databases.</p>

    <p>This flag only affects newly created databases.  It has no
    effect on databases that already exist.</p>
