With regard to BerkelyDB => RTFM. You can't just make syntax up and expect it to work. This works fine.....

[root@www mail]# cat reader.pl #!/usr/bin/perl use BerkeleyDB; tie %hash, 'BerkeleyDB::Hash', -Filename => $ARGV[0] or die "can't read file '$ARGV[0]': $!"; print map { " $_ => $hash{$_}\n" } sort keys %hash; [root@www mail]# ./reader.pl virtusertable.db @blech.com.au => blech.com.au [snip]

With regard to your second example, once again you need to RTFM. You have a syntax error in that DB_HASH is a $PERL_SCALAR not a constant as you assume. I would agree with your C style brain that it should logically be a constant but I did not design the interface.....

tie %hash, 'DB_File', $file, O_RDONLY, 0666, $DB_HASH

cheers

    Well, I did RTFM of both modules, but missed some parts apparently.. Like $DB_HASH instead of DB_HASH. I'll blame DB_File API for mixing up C-style constants and Perl-style constants. I can also blame myself for not copy&paste the code like I did for the BerkeleyDB example. It seems that it was the -Property => DB_DUP | DB_DUPSORT that prevent the code to run. When I comment this option, the script works. Well, thanks anyway.

      I totally agree that the DB_File API is rather sub optimal with its mixed constants.

      cheers
