     cdbr cdbr_open, cdbr_entries, cdbr_get, cdbr_find, cdbr_close, cdbr_write -- constant data-
     base access methods

     struct cdbr *
     cdbr_open(const char *path, int flags);

     cdbr_entries(struct cdbr *cdbr);

     cdbr_get(struct cdbr *cdbr, uint32_t index, const void **data, size_t *datalen);

     cdbr_find(struct cdbr *cdbr, const void *key, size_t keylen, const void **data,
	 size_t *datalen);

     cdbr_close(struct cdbr *cdbr);

     The cdbr library provides a space efficient (key,value) database based on perfect hashing.

     A cdb database is opened for reading by calling cdbr_open().  The only supported value for
     flags is CDBR_DEFAULT.  The function returns a handle to pass to the other functions.  The
     database is closed by invoking cdbr_close().  All resources associated with the handle are
     freed and the memory returned by cdbr_get() and cdbr_find() is invalidated.

     The number of records in the database can be obtained by calling cdbr_entries().  Records
     can be obtained by record number using cdbr_get() or by key using cdbr_find().  Both func-
     tions return 0 on success and update data and datalen accordingly.  The location *data
     remains valid until cdbr_close() is called.  It is the responsibility of the caller of
     cdbr_find() to ensure that the key matches the returned data.  The function returns the only
     possible match, but the database doesn't store the keys to minimize overhead.

     nbperf(1), cdbw(3), db(3), cdb(5)

     Support for the cdb format first appeared in NetBSD 6.0.

     The cdbr and cdbw functions have been written by Joerg Sonnenberger <joerg@NetBSD.org>.
