sqlite package does not include the tcl api
After installing the tcl, sqlite-dev, sqlite-libs and sqlite packages, running the command ‘package require sqlite3’ in tcl fails. There is a very close relationship between the tcl and sqlite projects and not including the tcl api is a serious omission.
If you look at the Sqlite Download page, you see this:
(1.90 MiB) C source code as an amalgamation, version 3.15.2.
(2.38 MiB) C source code as an amalgamation. Also includes a “configure” script and TEA makefiles for the TCL Interface.
I’m guessing that when the Alpine sqlite package was built, the .zip file was used instead of the tar file. Judging by what the sqlite folks say above, the tar file includes the tcl api, the zip file does not. Just a guess.
