Can you please elaborate? Structure your report as follows:

1. this is what I did
2. this is what happened
3. this is what should have happened instead.

I use Python 3.2.3 on GNU/Linux 64bits (openSUSE 12.2).
I have created an in-memory connection with the following code:

conn = sqlite3.connect(":memory:", detect_types=sqlite3.PARSE_DECLTYPES, check_same_thread=False)
conn.row_factory = sqlite3.Row

Then I have filled the database, but when it comes to copy it via conn.iterdump(), it crashed with the following message:

File "/usr/lib64/python3.2/sqlite3/", line 30, in _iterdump
    for table_name, type, sql in sorted(schema_res.fetchall()):
TypeError: unorderable types: sqlite3.Row() < sqlite3.Row()

It seems that the error appears because of the use of "sorted()". In fact, if I don't change conn.row_factory or if I use a custom class _Row implementing __lt__ method (see below) this error does not appear.

class _Row(sqlite3.Row):
    def __lt__(self, x):
        return False

By the way, this issue does not appear with Python 3.2.2.

Here's a minimal fix that modifies the sql in sqlite3.dump._iterdump() to sort the tables by name. It is then no longer necessary to sort the resultset in Python for the unit tests to pass.

Thanks for the patch. In which version will be your patch integrated?

For the record, this is a regression introduced by the fix for issue 9750.  I plan to commit the fix shortly, thanks for the report and patch.

Peter, I see you've made contributions before, but you don't show as having a contributor agreement on file according to the tracker.  Have you sent one in?  If not, would you, please?

Thanks again for the fix.
