Anonymous Monk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
So I've searched, I've read pod pages and whatnot, and I'm still really confused as to what anydbm_file is for.
I have a script I'm going to run on two different systems. One has DB_file and the other has several other DB types (NDBM, ODBM, SDBM) but not DB_file.
I was hoping that anydbm_file would allow me to use whichever was available, but the documentation page for anydbm is very sparse, and doesn't give very good syntax or examples.
Could someone elucidate for me?
