       NOTEDB::general - module	lib for	accessing a notedb from	perl

	       # include the module
	       use NOTEDB;

	       # create	a new NOTEDB object
	       $db = new NOTEDB("text",	"/home/tom/.notedb", 4096, 24);

	       # decide	to use encryption
	       # $key is the cipher to use for encryption
	       # $method must be either	Crypt::IDEA or Crypt::DES
	       # you need Crypt::CBC, Crypt::IDEA and Crypt::DES to have installed.

	       # do not	use encryption
	       # this is the default

	       # get a single note
	       ($note, $date) =	$db->get_single(1);

	       # search	for a certain note
	       %matching_notes = $db->get_search("somewhat");
	       # format	of returned hash:
	       #$matching_notes{$numberofnote}->{'note'	=> 'something',	'date' => '23.12.2000 10:33:02'}

	       # get all existing notes
	       %all_notes = $db->get_all();
	       # format	of returnes hash like the one from get_search above

	       # get the next noteid available
	       $next_num = $db->get_nextnum();

	       # modify	a certain note
	       $db->set_edit(1,	"any text", "23.12.2000	10:33:02");

	       # create	a new note
	       $db->set_new(5, "any new	text", "23.12.2000 10:33:02");

	       # delete	a certain note

	       # turn on encryption. CryptMethod must be IDEA, DES or BLOWFISH
	       $db->use_crypt("passphrase", "CryptMethod");

	       # turn off encryption. This is the default.

       You can use this	module for accessing a note database. This backend
       uses a text file	for storage and	Config::General	for accessing the

       Currently, NOTEDB module	is only	used by	note itself. But feel free to
       use it within your own project! Perhaps someone want to implement a
       webinterface to note...

       please see the section SYNOPSIS,	it says	it all.
