lib:SDBM_File

See the current Perl documentation for lib:SDBM_File.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:


SDBM_File - Tied access to sdbm files



 use SDBM_File;

 tie(%h, 'SDBM_File', 'Op.dbmx', O_RDWR|O_CREAT, 0640);

 untie %h;



See tie

[ozboomer]: Howdy, all.. Trying this once more... Not really a perl question :(... but I don't know how to even title my query (more...)
[ozboomer]: There's a text file with lots of sections in it, like an '.ini/.conf' file. Each section can be 'used' or 'unused' by its application (more...)
[ozboomer]: Some folk want to use the text file as 'storage', keeping ALL items in it (a database); others call it an 'active document' that should only contain 'in-use' sections. Is there a 'good practice' for this sort of thing?
