Hi,

playing around with the "Meuse" dataset about soil contamination I

attempted to calculate that right away but...:

v.db.update meuse_voronoi column="logzinc" qcolumn="log(zinc)"

DBMI-SQLite driver error:

Error in sqlite3_prepare():

no such function: log

DBMI-SQLite driver error:

Error in sqlite3_prepare():

no such function: log

ERROR: Error while executing: 'UPDATE meuse_voronoi SET logzinc=log(zinc)'

After some online research I found that I would need to tune my local

SQLite installation with

https://sqlite.org/contrib/download/extension-functions.c

Provide mathematical and string extension functions for SQL queries

using the loadable extensions mechanism. Math: acos, asin, atan, atn2,

atan2, acosh, asinh, atanh, difference, degrees, radians, cos, sin,

tan, cot, cosh, sinh, tanh, coth, exp, log, log10, power, sign, sqrt,

square, ceil, floor, pi. String: replicate, charindex, leftstr,

rightstr, ltrim, rtrim, trim, replace, reverse, proper, padl, padr,

padc, strfilter. Aggregate: stdev, variance, mode, median,

lower_quartile, upper_quartile.

"

Alternative: use pysqlite and define an own function.

Which way to go?

thanks

Markus
