Subject Re: dbmmanage overhaul
Date Mon, 21 Jul 1997 23:12:59 GMT

Well I personally liked that fact the old one was still perl 4 compatible,
but maybe I'm the only one still in the dark ages with /usr/local/bin/perl
= perl4.  At any rate I won't protest it.

Since there are now a myriad of dbm file formats, is there any way to
distinguish between them when presented with a file of unknown dbm type?
I.e. if I have a file called passwd.db, how can I tell whether it's ndbm,
gdbm, sdbm, etc?  Could we have that be an option in the dbmmanage program?
