Chapter 26 The dbm library: access to NDBM databases
The dbm library provides access to NDBM databases under Unix.
NDBM databases maintain key/data associations, where both the key and
the data are arbitrary strings. They support fairly large databases
(several gigabytes) and can retrieve a keyed item in one or two file
system accesses. Refer to the Unix manual pages for more information.
Programs that use the dbm library must be linked as follows:
or (if dynamic linking of C libraries is supported on your platform),
start ocaml and type #load "dbm.cma";;.
ocamlc other options dbm.cma other files
ocamlopt other options dbm.cmxa other files
For interactive use of the dbm library, do:
ocamlmktop -o mytop dbm.cma
This library is not available.
