GDBM_File

NAME

GDBM_File - Perl5 access to the gdbm library.

SYNOPSIS

  1. use GDBM_File ;
  2. tie %hash, 'GDBM_File', $filename, &GDBM_WRCREAT, 0640;
  3. # Use the %hash array.
  4. untie %hash ;

DESCRIPTION

GDBM_File is a module which allows Perl programs to make use of the facilities provided by the GNU gdbm library. If you intend to use this module you should really have a copy of the gdbm manualpage at hand.

Most of the libgdbm.a functions are available through the GDBM_File interface.

AVAILABILITY

gdbm is available from any GNU archive. The master site is ftp.gnu.org , but you are strongly urged to use one of the many mirrors. You can obtain a list of mirror sites from http://www.gnu.org/order/ftp.html.

BUGS

The available functions and the gdbm/perl interface need to be documented.

The GDBM error number and error message interface needs to be added.
