GNU dbm ('gdbm') is a library of database functions that use extendible
hashing and works similarly to the standard UNIX 'dbm' functions.
The basic use of 'gdbm' is to store key/data pairs in a data file, thus
providing a persistent version of the 'dictionary' Abstract Data Type
('hash' to perl programmers).
