about GetDbObjectScope()

Starting since version 5.0.0 libspatialite supports a new SQL function surely useful for all third-parties intending to develop their own custom interfaces for managing SQLite+SpatiaLite databases adopting a style more or less similar to the one implemented by spatialite_gui and may be using some programming language such as C/C++, Java, Python or whatever else.
The new function is named GetDbObjectScope(), and will return a short but clear description about the intended scope of each DB object defined within a currently connected database.

The following categories of DB objects are supported:
and will be classified into one of the following groups:


GetDbObjectScope ( db-prefix Text , obj-name Text ) : Text

A practical example

SELECT type, name, GetDBObjectScope(NULL, name) AS object_scope FROM sqlite_master;
The above SQL query will classify all DB objects defined within the MAIN DB.
The following table corresponds to a simplified excerpt of the returned resultset.
