- Implements most of SQL92. (Features not supported)
- A complete database is stored in a single cross-platform disk file.
- Supports terabyte-sized databases and gigabyte-sized strings and blobs. (See limits.html.)
- Small code footprint: less than 350KiB fully configured or less than 200KiB with optional features omitted.
- Faster than popular client/server database engines for most common operations.
- Simple, easy to use API.
- Written in ANSI-C. TCL bindings included. Bindings for dozens of other languages available separately.
- Well-commented source code with 100% branch test coverage.
- Available as a single ANSI-C source-code file that you can easily drop into another project.
- Self-contained: no external dependencies.
