dbm-open

Arguments: filename &key if-exists if-does-not-exist default-return external-format mode store-null-terminators

dbm-open opens or creates an ndbm database. filename specifies the base filename for the database (notes on this below).

The keyword arguments are:

This function returns an ndbm object.

Note about the filename

Your operating system's implementation of NDBM may augment the supplied filename and open/create additional files to support the database. For example, many implementations take the base filename and make two files: filename.dir and file.pag. Always use just the base filename when calling dbm-open.

See ndbm.htm for information on the NDBM facility.
