   I'd start with sql-sqlite: you should be able to get something working
   pretty quickly, and if it turns out to have features that get in the way
   you'll be familiar enough with it to drop down a level to comint.

Ok. I have tried to get something but failed:

 (defun sqlite-connect (db)
   (let ((sql-database db))

 (sqlite-connect "/tmp/foo.db")
 (with-current-buffer (process-buffer (get-process "SQL")))
   (sql-send-string "select * from foo;"))


No SQL process started.

M-x list-process:

Proc      Status   Buffer        Tty        Command
----      ------   ------        ---        -------
SQL       run      *SQL*         /dev/pts/2 sqlite /tmp/foot.db

What is the problem ?

Thank you
