When using the sqlite3.Row object as a row factory, one can access the resulting rows by index (such as row[1]) or by name (such as row['b']). However, the slice functionality is lost, as doing row[0:2] raises the error:

"slices not implemented, yet"

Here is a patch that fixes this, I implemented it and I added the corresponding unit test.

Thanks for the patch. Two things:

- there is a compilation warning using gcc:

/home/antoine/cpython/default/Modules/_sqlite/row.c: In function ‘pysqlite_row_subscript’:
/home/antoine/cpython/default/Modules/_sqlite/row.c:128:26: attention : passing argument 1 of ‘PySlice_GetIndicesEx’ from incompatible pointer type

- you can use assertEqual to avoid defining the error message yourself

Thanks for the ticket and patch, xapple!

I updated the patch to address the compiler warning and use assertEqual.

While testing, I noticed that slicing with steps wasn't supported, so I expanded the sqlite3.Row slicing code to support steps, and added some additional tests.

The slicing code in Modules/_sqlite/row.c:pysqlite_row_subscript is unfortunately pretty redundant with the slicing code in Objects/tupleobject.c. It'd be better to either be able to factor the code from both into a function (but I couldn't see how to do this without making it part of the public API), or have tuple, sqlite.Row, etc.  implement a shared slicing interface. Perhaps we should defer that decision to a future ticket, though.

Note that even after this patch, sqlite.Row instances don't support negative indices.

* This patch passes `make patchcheck`.
* The full test suite passes with this patch.
* There are no build warnings related to the patch.

I've also uploaded a short script that sets up an in-memory sqlite database that fetches Rows, for easy manual testing.

May be just use PyObject_GetItem(self->data, idx)?

Here is a patch with much simpler implementation.

Could you look at the patch Gerhard?

The implementation can be much simpler, but in any case thank you for your patches Lucas and Jessica.
