Subject: Fail gracefully when database hits max size
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 387b
Maximum database size is determined by pack_size when the database is created. Currently, when the database gets too big it gets corrupted and programs using the database yield various random errors. It would be nice if DBM::Deep would fail gracefully when the database hits its maximum size, yielding an error message like "Database full: recreate using larger pack_size". Thank you.
