Is there a library that is smaller than SQLite? It could have basic interface, small SQL subset, easy compilation.
Maintainers of SQLite rejected requests for a way to return file descriptor of database and journal. This is crucial for me. I cannot even be sure if that are the only file descriptors in use.
Comparing e.g. GDBM to SQLite – it's smaller, simpler and has
gdbm_fdesc() call. I imagine something similar-basic but SQL-based is possible, but cannot find such library. Is there any?
