.Sh DESCRIPTION
The
.Nm
library provides a space efficient (key,value) database based
on perfect hashing.
.Pp
A cdb database is opened for reading by calling
.Fn cdbr_open .
The only supported value for
.Va flags
is
.Dv CDBR_DEFAULT .
The function returns a handle to pass to the other functions.
The database is closed by invoking
.Fn cdbr_close .
All resources associated with the handle are freed and the memory
returned by
.Fn cdbr_get
and
.Fn cdbr_find
is invalidated.
.Pp
The number of records in the database can be obtained by calling
.Fn cdbr_entries .
Records can be obtained by record number using
.Fn cdbr_get
or by key using
.Fn cdbr_find .
Both functions return 0 on success and update
.Va data
and
.Va datalen
accordingly.
The location
.Va *data
remains valid until
.Fn cdbr_close
is called.
It is the responsibility of the caller of
.Fn cdbr_find
to ensure that the key matches the returned data.
The function returns the only possible match, but the database doesn't store
the keys to minimize overhead.
