DESCRIPTIONGDBM_File is a module which allows Perl programs to make use of the facilities provided by the
GNUgdbm library. If you intend to use this module you should really have a copy of the gdbm manualpage at hand.
Most of the libgdbm.a functions are available through the GDBM_File interface.
AVAILABILITYgdbm is available from any
GNUarchive. The master site is "ftp: ftp.gnu.org", but you are strongly urged to use one of the many mirrors. You can obtain a list of mirror sites from www.gnu.org/order/ftp.html
BUGSThe available functions and the gdbm/perl interface need to be documented.
GDBMerror number and error message interface needs to be added.
