The BerkeleyDB package

[ Tags: bsd3, database, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

Provides Haskell bindings for Berkeley DB v1.x, a simple file-backed database library which is included by default with many UNIX distributions. This package presently makes no effort to support modern versions of Berkeley DB.

Databases may be organized in one of four methods: in a hashtable, in a b-tree, in a stream of fixed-length records, and in a stream of variable-length records. Custom comparison and hash functions are supported. Most of the standard database API is supported.

This implementation *seems* stable, inasmuch as I don't know of any glaring flaws, but I haven't done anything that could even jokingly be referred to as coverage testing.
