     cdbw_open, cdbw_put, cdbw_put_data, cdbw_put_key, cdbw_stable_seeder, cdbw_output,
     cdbw_close -- create constant databases

     cdbw_put(struct cdbw *cdbw, const void *key, size_t keylen, const void *data,
	 size_t datalen);

     cdbw_close(struct cdbw *cdbw);

     The cdbw functions are used to create a constant databases for use with cdbr(3).  Details
     about the file format, including overhead and limitations, can be found in cdb(5).

     cdbw_open() prepares a new cdb writer.  The function returns a handle to pass to the other

     cdbw_close() frees all resources associated with the handle.

     cdbw_put() adds the given (key,value) pair after checking for a duplicate key.
     cdbw_put_data() adds the given value to the writer without adding a key reference.  The
     returned index can be used in subsequent calls to cdbw_put_key() to add one or more keys
     pointing to this value.  cdbw_put_key() checks for duplicate keys and valid index arguments.
     On success it adds the given key.

     cdbw_output() computes the database file and writes it to the given descriptor.  The func-
     tion returns an error if the file cannot be written correctly.  The descr() parameter pro-
     vides a human readable description of the database content.  The seedgen() parameter can be
     used to override the default PRNG.  The bitwise layout of the output depends on the chosen
     seed.  The function should return a different value for each invocation.  The
     cdbw_stable_seeder() can be used to create reproducible output.  It may be slower than the

     cdbr(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>.
