Subject: RE: reading databases from perl?

Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hello Celia

I have been reading the SN database externally, but not
with perl. I previously did some hacking using dbdump,
which is distributed with SN. At present I am trying to
build a PHP extension module to read the database.

Apparently you can also access the database using tcl;
SN is mostly written in TCL.

The database format is berkeley DB 1.85 (a very old format)
which can be found at .

Perhaps you could build the static database library, link
it into a shared library, then access it using perl.
