.TP
.BI \-init\ file
Read in and process 'file', which contains "dot commands".
You can use this file to initialize display settings.
.TP
.B \-html
Set output mode to HTML.
.TP
.B \-list
Set output mode to 'list'.
.TP
.B \-line
Set output mode to 'line'.
.TP
.B \-column
Set output mode to 'column'.
.TP
.BI \-seperator\  seperator
Specify which output field seperator for 'list' mode to use.
Default is '|'.
.TP
.BI \-nullvalue\  string
When a null is encountered, print 'string'. Default is no string.
.TP
.B \-[no]header
Turn headers on or off. Default is off.
.TP
.B \-echo
Print commands before execution.


.SH OUTPUT MODE
The SQLite program has different output modes, which define the way
the output (from queries) is formatted.

In 'list' mode, which is the default, one record per line is output,
each field seperated by the seperator specified with the
................................................................................
In 'line' mode, each column is output on its own line, records are
seperated by blank lines.

In HTML mode, an XHTML table is generated.

In 'column' mode, one record per line is output, aligned neatly in colums.

.SH INIT FILE
sqlite can be initialized using resource files. These can be combined with
command line arguments to set up sqlite exactly the way you want it.
Initialization proceeds as follows:

o The defaults of

.sp
.nf
.cc |
mode            = LIST
separator       = "|"
main prompt     = "sqlite> "
continue prompt = "   ...> "
|cc .
.sp
.fi

are established.

o If a file .sqliterc can be found in the user's home directory, it is
read and processed. It should only contain "dot commands".  If the
file is not found or cannot be read, processing continues without
notification.

o If a file is specified on the command line with the -init option, it
is processed in the same manner as .sqliterc

o All other command line options are processed

o The database is opened and you are now ready to begin.
