I am looking for a sequence of SQL  commands that will do three things
open a file
lock some range
close the file

I am writing a script and want to run this sequence infinitely to catch some leak in my server code.
What set of SQL commands can cause the above sequence to occur

Are you running transactions?
Here are some notes on locking http://www.sqlite.org/lockingv3.html
As listed in the documentation, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE usually lock rows; however, note the comment on EXCLUSIVE lock because of full memory cache.

.open command with a file name will close the current database and open the one in specified file; however, in most cases, people usually start SQLite with the database to open:
sqlite <file/database name>

Open in new window

You may want to add some debugging code with the help of one or more of the "leak" related modules.
