The current SQLCipher (version 3.20.1, compile date 24/08/2017) is compiled without SQLITE_ENABLE_EXPLAIN_COMMENTS, so although there is a comment output column, the Explain command doesn't produce any comments. This is a pity as it looks using Explain could be an easy way to see all the select columns of a SQL and also also the source table of those select fields. Is there any SQLCipher library available anywhere, compiled with SQLITE_ENABLE_EXPLAIN_COMMENTS?
Or maybe somebody on this forum knows how to compile this and is happy to make this available. I had a look at the compile instructions, but it doesn't look that simple.
