Hi Tim,
Thanks for the feedback.
I'm not entirely sure I'm Doing It Right, but attached is a different =

patch against trunk, which uses the install_method() method of =

installing functions.

It works, but produces a warning that "backup_ is not a registered =

driver prefix". However if i add "sqlite_" to the front, then I get an =

error that sqlite_backup_from_file() cannot be found.
Although the new methods inside dbdimp.c and SQLite.xs all do have that =


Could you suggest what I have done wrong?
