in reply to Disk based hash (as opposed to RAM based)

How does your program fail?

I remember that maybe DB_File (or BDB_File?) had a filesize limit of 4GB, or maybe a hash key count limit of some size.

    cant use string ("ARRAY(0x18fe8258)") as an ARRAY ref while "strict refs" in use at

    It seems to me that the hash is failing to read an array as an array ref. But push requires the first argument to be an array... This error only happens when I have the hash tied to the db file.

    The size of the file isn't a worry to me. I said 5gb a rough example.
