Hi.
I have a simple perl program and I´m using DBMfiles to store data. Well, here comes the problem. I made the program and run it on a Redhat platform, but when we changed to slakware there is another type of DBM files - *.dir and *.pag. Why? Can I still use the old *.db files from the redhat platform?

Try ignoring the issue until you want to convert:


use AnyDBM_File;

dbmopen(%DB, '/data/path/foo',0666);
