SQLite very easy to use. To use from C (assuming gcc is the compiler):

- #include sqlite3.h
- compile like this: gcc -lsqlite3 file.c
- you really only need 3 API functions, sqlite3_open, sqlite3_exec, sqlite3_close
- for sqlite3_exec, you need to provide a callback that takes the number of columns, the name of each column, and the value of each column; the callback is called by the library for each component of the resultset
- you can create a database using 'sqlite3 database_name.db' from a shell prompt.
