gdbm – GNU’s version of the dbm library¶
|Purpose:||GNU’s version of the dbm library|
|Available In:||1.4 and later|
Besides the standard 'r', 'w', 'c', and 'n' flags, gdbm.open() supports:
- 'f' to open the database in fast mode. In fast mode, writes to the database are not synchronized.
- 's' to open the database in synchronized mode. Changes to the database are written to the file as they are made, rather than being delayed until the database is closed or synced explicitly.
- 'u' to open the database unlocked.
