NAME
       ndbm.h - definitions for ndbm database operations

SYNOPSIS
       #include <ndbm.h>

DESCRIPTION
       The  <ndbm.h> header shall define the datum type as a structure that includes at least the
       following members:

	      void   *dptr  A pointer to the application's data.
	      size_t  dsize The size of the object pointed to by dptr.

       The size_t type shall be defined as described in <stddef.h> .

       The <ndbm.h> header shall define the DBM type.

       The following constants shall be defined as possible values for the store_mode argument to
       dbm_store():

       DBM_INSERT
	      Insertion of new entries only.

       DBM_REPLACE
	      Allow replacing existing entries.

       The  following  shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as macros. Function
       prototypes shall be provided.

	      int     dbm_clearerr(DBM *);
	      void    dbm_close(DBM *);
	      int     dbm_delete(DBM *, datum);
	      int     dbm_error(DBM *);
	      datum   dbm_fetch(DBM *, datum);
	      datum   dbm_firstkey(DBM *);
	      datum   dbm_nextkey(DBM *);
	      DBM    *dbm_open(const char *, int, mode_t);
	      int     dbm_store(DBM *, datum, datum, int);

       The mode_t type shall be defined through typedef as described in <sys/types.h> .
