in reply to Super-Portable DB_File Solution

SDBM and other standard DBM data files are not binary compatible across platforms, AFAIK. Probably the most robust solution is DBM::Deep, it's pure perl so you can FTP it to your site or cut and paste it into your script. Its data is cross-platform so you can FTP it. Other than that, Storable or Data::Dumper might do what you need.
