Changes for version 0.05 - 2002-04-09

  • removed use Carp qw(verbose) which was effecting other modules
  • documentation improvements recommended by Stas Bekman <>
  • the documentation said we supported RECONO (tie for arrays) but Shlomo Yona <> pointed out the implementation did not support that. Added support for RECNO.
  • added a warning when opening a database with write access and only locking it for reading. This warning disabled for RECNO because RECNO seems to require O_RDWR even when opening only for reading.
  • added test of database creation failure
  • added test of database access through object interface
  • added test of RECNO database creation and usage


Locking with flock wrapper for DB_File
