    One thing a SQLite is a flat files based DB so you can compress the files using either gzip or other compression you like.

      Well, SQLite has internal hooks for compress() and uncompress() so I would like to use those. I just don't know how.
      From the documentation, it seems I would need to call
      $dbh->sqlite_create_function( 'compress', 1, sub { # magic incantation +s for compression } ); $dbh->sqlite_create_function( 'uncompress', 1, sub { # magic incantati +ons for uncompression } );

      Then when I call INSERT or SELECT I need to compress() and uncompress() the text strings.
      Maybe I could use IO::Compress::Zip for the magic incantations...?
      That's what I can gather, but I can find no specifics on implementation.
