NAME

       tdb - trivial database

SYNOPSIS

       A database similar to gdbm which allows multiple simultaneous writers.

DESCRIPTION

       This  is  a  simple database API. It was inspired by the realisation that in Samba we have
       several ad-hoc bits of  code  that  essentially  implement  small  databases  for  sharing
       structures between parts of Samba. As I was about to add another I realised that a generic
       database module was called for to replace all the ad-hoc bits.

       I based the interface on gdbm. I couldn't use gdbm as we need to be able to have  multiple
       writers to the databases at one time.
