This is an egg for CHICKEN 3, the unsupported old release. You're almost certainly looking for the CHICKEN 4 version of this egg, if it exists.
If it does not exist, there may be equivalent functionality provided by another egg; have a look at the egg index. Otherwise, please consider porting this egg to the current version of CHICKEN.
Incomplete, simple interface to qdbm.
This egg provides an incomplete, simple interface to qdbm. Here are two examples that illustrate its use.
Writing a "depot" database
> csi #;1> (use qdbm) #;2> (define d (dp-open-write "testdb" 'create)) #;3> d #<pointer 0x809a378> #;4> (dp-put d "key1" 4 "val1" 4) #t #;5> (dp-close d) #t #;6> (exit)
Verify the result with dpmgr (part of qdbm):
> dpmgr list testdb key1val1
Reading a "depot" database
#;1> (use qdbm) #;2> (define d (dp-open-read "testdb")) #;3> d #<pointer 0x809a378> #;4> (dp-get d "key1") "val1" #;5> (dp-close d) #t #;6> (exit)
