SDBM

Build Status

SDBM provides a simple file-based key-value store, which can only store String keys and values.

Note that Ruby comes with the source code for SDBM, while the DBM and GDBM standard libraries rely on external libraries and headers.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'sdbm'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install sdbm

Usage

Insert values:

require 'sdbm'

SDBM.open 'my_database' do |db|
  db['apple'] = 'fruit'
  db['pear'] = 'fruit'
  db['carrot'] = 'vegetable'
  db['tomato'] = 'vegetable'
end

Bulk update:

require 'sdbm'

SDBM.open 'my_database' do |db|
  db.update('peach' => 'fruit', 'tomato' => 'fruit')
end

Retrieve values:

require 'sdbm'

SDBM.open 'my_database' do |db|
  db.each do |key, value|
 puts "Key: #{key}, Value: #{value}"
  end
end

Outputs:

Key: apple, Value: fruit
Key: pear, Value: fruit
Key: carrot, Value: vegetable
Key: peach, Value: fruit
Key: tomato, Value: fruit

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake test to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
