The native sqlite prepare function has a return pointer indexing the remainder of the string after the extracted statement. This aids in splitting a multi-statement, such as loaded from a script file, without burdening the user on all the syntax and grammar necessary to pre-parse the SQL. This is significantly better than generic attempts such as splitting by ';' and such that can be thrown off by having that character in a string or comment.
The request is to create an additional prepare overload that returns an out string containing the remainder of the input string or some functional equivalent to assist in using the native feature.
