tdb - trivial database
A database similar to gdbm which allows multiple simultaneous writers.
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
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.
