NAME

BerkeleyDB::Easy::Cursor - Cursor to database handle

METHODS

Most of the functionaly for BerkeleyDB cursors are crammed into a few underlying functions, with the behavior specified by a flag. For example, to get the next record, you call c_get and provide the DB_NEXT flag. In this module, these are split out into individual wrapper methods, and the required flag is provided for you. You can specify additional flags and they will be OR'ed together with the default.

first

Get the first record.

        ($key, $val) = $cursor->first();

last

Get the last record.

        ($key, $val) = $cursor->last();

next

Get the next record.

        ($key, $val) = $cursor->next();

prev

Move the previous record.

        ($key, $val) = $cursor->prev();

current

Get the record at the current position.

        ($key, $val) = $cursor->current();

set

Position the cursor to the specified key.

        ($key, $val) = $cursor->set($key);

after

Set the next record to the specified value. Returns true on success.

        $bool = $cursor->after($val);

before

Set the previous record to the specified value.

        $bool = $cursor->before($val);

replace

Replace the record at the current position.

        $bool = $cursor->replace($val);

del

        $bool = $cursor->del();
