Data Base


We write several databases with various suffixes of this name.

  • $DataBase.db is the DBM file opened with dbopen.
  • $DataBase.wdb is a directory containing pages as individual files.

We construct the database name from $ScriptName so that various links to the script can access various databases.

  $DataBase = "[Blank /usr/ward/pages]/$ScriptName";
