tdb_open - Open a tdb database.
TDB_CONTEXT *tdb_open(const char *pathname, int hash_size,
int tdb_flags, int open_flags, mode_t mode );
Open the database, creating it if necessary. The hash size is advisory,
use zero for a default value. tdb_flags can be one of
Clear database if we are the only one with it open.
Don't use a file, instead store the data in memory. The pathname
, open_flags , and mode are ignored in this case. This is useful
if you need a quick associative array or map.
Don't do any locking (this is always turned on for read-only
Don't use mmap.
Create a database in the reverse of native endian: normally when
the database is created (or cleared with TDB_CLEAR_IF_FIRST), it
is created in native endian order. This flag is set (or unset)
automatically for existing databases.
The open_flags and mode are passed straight to the open call on the
database file. A flags value of O_WRONLY is invalid.
On success a pointer to an opaque data structure, a TDB_CONTEXT is
returned. On error a NULL is returned.
