This module interfaces "Database.AnyDBM" to Python's anydbm.py.
Implementations for specific Python *dbm modules are also available.

See and import "Database.AnyDBM" to use these features.

{- | Opens a persistent storage database using the \"best\" storage mechanism
available to Python on this system.  This will usually be one of the *dbm

only marginally better than "Database.AnyDBM.StringDBM".

{- | Open a database using a specific module given by the first parameter.  The
module supported are:

* dbhash

* dbm

* dumbdbm

* gdbm
