The SQLite library may be compiled in either ISO-8859-1 or UTF-8
compatible modes. This function allows you to determine which encoding
scheme is used by your version of the library.
The default PHP distribution builds libsqlite in ISO-8859-1 encoding
mode. However, this is a misnomer; rather than handling ISO-8859-1, it
operates according to your current locale settings for string
comparisons and sort ordering. So, rather than ISO-8859-1, you should
think of it as being '8-bit' instead.
When compiled with UTF-8 support, sqlite handles encoding and decoding
of UTF-8 multi-byte character sequences, but does not yet do a complete
job when working with the data (no normalization is performed for
example), and some comparison operations may still not be carried out
It is not recommended that you use PHP in a web-server configuration
with a version of the SQLite library compiled with UTF-8 support, since
libsqlite will abort the process if it detects a problem with the
