Re: Mysterious GDBM_File errorby Speedy (Monk)

I don't have a theoretical answer about the source of the problem; GDBM seems relatively undocumented. But I do have a workaround.
Define your file
$voo = "/somewhere/voo";
somewhere before the subroutine call.
Substitute the variable $voo for $_ in the DBMopenread subroutine -- it is a global variable, so the statement become:
$DBREFread=tie %DBM, GDBM_File, $voo, &GDBM_READER, 0644;
Leave the parameter out of the subroutine call, just:
Seems to work. Of course you have to pay attention to the other instances of 'voo' versus the variable $voo.
Sorry I don't have a more satisfactory "why," but you can get on with yur work.
