constant database multitool


This is ezcdb, a constant database multitool.

The ezcdb package provides a single, multipurpose utility used to
generate, query, analyze, and operate on constant database files
in the cdb file format.


A "constant database" is a collection of records whose values are
generally persistent, or "constant".  Meaning they don't change

The cdb file format is a hash-on-disk data store for constant data,
originally designed by Daniel J. Bernstein.  It provides for
efficient datafile creation and fast keyed retrieval.


ezcdb provides a single, efficient, and easy to use utility for
working with cdb files.  It is fully compatible with the original
implementation, builds cdb files with 25% less memory overhead,
and provides a complete set of database functions at the command
line, including basic set operations.
