Berkeley DB for REBOL

 [1/4] from: jeff::rebol::net at: 15-Jan-2002 8:21


Howdy, gang: I have released some code that I banged out in my spare time for interfacing Berkeley db 1.85 with REBOL/Command. It seems to work well under both windows and unix. The code is available here: http://www.cs.unm.edu/~whip/ IMPORTANT CAVEAT: With the current REBOL/Command release, you're limited to putting and fetching text-only data because the library interface doesn't accept binary! types for parameters. This limitation is not in the next REBOL/Command release. You'll notice some comments about that in the code where it applies. Salutations! -jeff

Hi Jeff, I try to uncompress the file with Winzip and I get the invalid archive message. Any ideas ? (uncompressing tar.gz with winzip normally works fine!) Why did you target the historic version 1.85 instead of the recent 4.0 releases ? Thanks a lot

Maybe it's the old shift-click / right-click asci transfer issue with the browser? You may also fetch the package with rebol: write/binary %rebol-db.rip read/binary http://www.cs.unm.edu/~whip/rebol-db.rip do %rebol-db.rip

The historical Berkeley DBs have a BSD license. Also, 1.85 is adequate for many uses. -jeff
