VCP::DB_File::sdbm - Subclass providing SDBM_File storage
To write your own DB_File filetype, copy this file and alter it. Then ask us to
add an option to the .vcp file parsing to enable it.
$db->dump( \*STDOUT );
my $s = $db->dump;
my @l = $db->dump;
Dumps keys and values from a DB, in lexically sorted key order. If a filehandle
reference is provided, prints to that filehandle. Otherwise, returns a string
or array containing the entire dump, depending on context.
There is no way (yet) of telling the mapper to continue processing the rules
list. We could implement labels like " << label
> to be allowed before pattern expressions (but not between pattern and
result), and we could then impelement " <<goto
"> >. And a " <<next"> > could be
used to fall through to the next label. All of which is wonderful, but I want
to gain some real world experience with the current system and find a use case
for gotos and fallthroughs before I implement them. This comment is here to
solicit feedback :).

Hey! The above document had some coding errors, which are explained
- Around line 17:
- You can't have =items (as at line 184) unless the first thing after the
=over is an =item
