The BerkeleyDB package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

This package provides a Haskell binding for Berkeley DB, which is a fast, scalable, fully transactional database that runs on a local file system, and functions as a dictionary of arbitrary-sized binary blobs. It is NOT an SQL-based database. It is not free for commercial use.

This is a work in progress: The coverage of the Berkeley DB API is not yet complete. Tested with Berkeley DB versions 4.7 and 4.8, but should work with earlier versions.
