We're back after a server migration that caused effbot.org to fall over a bit harder than expected. Expect some glitches.

The gdbm module

(Optional). This module provides an interface to the GNU dbm database handler.

Example: Using the gdbm module
# File: gdbm-example-1.py

import gdbm

db = gdbm.open("gdbm", "c")
db["1"] = "call"
db["2"] = "the"
db["3"] = "next"
db["4"] = "defendant"

db = gdbm.open("gdbm", "r")

keys = db.keys()
for key in keys:
    print db[key],

call the next defendant
