DISQLite3: sqlite3_get_table() example

DISQLite3 implements a self-contained, embeddable, zero-configuration SQL database engine for Delphi (Embarcadero / CodeGear / Borland).

An updated version of this project is distributed with the DISQLite3 package!

{ DISQLite3 example showing the use of sqlite3_get_table().
 
  CAUTION: sqlite3_get_table() is a concenience function only. If the query
  returns lots of data, sqlite3_get_table() will consume huge amounts of memory!
 
  Developers are advised to stay far, far away from sqlite3_get_table() and
  use sqlite3_prepare(), sqlite3_step(), and sqlite3_finalize() instead.
 
  This demo is not meant to encourage the use of sqlite3_get_table(). It was
  written to answer a support question which explicitly asked for an example.
