Subject: In memory databases use a file anyway
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="UTF-8"
X-Mailer: MIME-tools 5.427 (Entity 5.427)
Content-Disposition: inline
Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary
X-RT-Original-Encoding: utf-8
Content-Length: 366
As stated in the docs, the following code... tie my %h, 'DB_File' , undef, O_CREAT, 0600, $DB_BTREE ... should create an in memory tree database. But the truth is that it is creating a file to store the data at "/var/tmp/DBD$$"; I believe that the documentation should be updated to reflect that behavior (or the code changed to really use in memory databases).
