gdbm 1.5 on rs6000 ?

Post by Doug Sewe » Sun, 15 Sep 1991 01:23:31



I've built gdbm 1.5 on the rs6000 (bsdcc, minor tweak to systems.h
to handle #pragma alloca right, little stuff).  The test programs
for dbm compatibility and ndbm compatibility work fine.

The gdbm test program goes into a loop, driving the machine to 100%
according to aixmon.

Has anyone seen/fixed this ?  If I didn't have some applications that
use gdbm, I wouldn't bother.

Thanks, Doug

I have seen a number of bugs in the GDBM 1.3 and 1.4 releases (primarily
mysterious corruption) on other platforms.  I have found that the NDBM
mode works fairly well, in case you can re-code your applications to
use NDBM mode instead.  But you are still likely to see an ocassional
database that defies opening due to some form of corruption ...
