Challenge: can you implement your own small database engine ?

A Simple and Efficient Implementation for Small Databases by Andrew D. Birreil Michael B. Jones Edward P. Wobber*

Based on that paper, you can write a small database engine. I suggest you to add a CLI tool,  a SQL parser and executor .. for example!

You could take a look at the SQLite code source to get ideas how this is implemented. By doing that, you get a better understanding how databases work.

If you did, please comment 🙂
