in thread Improving SQL speed

And if ganging up inserts still seems too slow, there's apparently a bulk load command named ".import" that will load a table from a file in one-shot:

The fact that there's a ".seperator" command makes it sound like it's better suited to tsv files than csv, but you'd need to play around with it to see. Most database bulk-loaders seem to work with some version of csv, but frequently you'll need to massage the csv first to get it in the form they expect: csv is a standard without a standard.

    Thanks. I'd had skimmed some other pages that suggested for this type of thing it might be faster to write everything out to a CSV and the do a bulk upload, but I hadn't found a good example of the necessary syntax yet. I'll check out those links.
