VCP::DB_File::sdbm(3) User Contributed Perl DocumentationVCP::DB_File::sdbm(3)

NAME
       VCP::DB_File::sdbm - Subclass providing SDBM_File storage

SYNOPSIS
	   use VCP::DB_File;
	   VCP::DB_File->new;

DESCRIPTION
       To write	your own DB_File filetype, copy	this file and alter it.	 Then
       ask us to add an	option to the .vcp file	parsing	to enable it.

	   dump

	      $db->dump( \*STDOUT );
	      my $s = $db->dump;
	      my @l = $db->dump;

	   Dumps keys and values from a	DB, in lexically sorted	key order.  If
	   a filehandle	reference is provided, prints to that filehandle.
	   Otherwise, returns a	string or array	containing the entire dump,
	   depending on	context.

LIMITATIONS
       There is	no way (yet) of	telling	the mapper to continue processing the
       rules list.  We could implement labels like " <<label"> > to be allowed
       before pattern expressions (but not between pattern and result),	and we
       could then impelement " <<goto label"> >.  And a	" <<next"> > could be
       used to fall through to the next	label.	All of which is	wonderful, but
       I want to gain some real	world experience with the current system and
       find a use case for gotos and fallthroughs before I implement them.
       This comment is here to solicit feedback	:).
