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. .Fn cdbr_open_mem works like .Fn cdbr_open , but takes a memory reference to the content of the database file. If .Va unmap is not .Dv NULL , it is called by .Fn cdbr_close with .Va cookie , .Va base and .Va size as arguments. It is not called by .Fn cdbr_open_mem on error. .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. .Sh SEE ALSO .Xr nbperf 1 , .Xr cdbw 3 , .Xr db 3 , .Xr cdb 5 .Sh HISTORY Support for the .Nm cdb format first appeared in .Nx 6.0 . .Sh AUTHORS The .Nm cdbr and .Nm cdbw functions have been written by .An Joerg Sonnenberger Aq Mt joerg@NetBSD.org .
