<p>The zeptodb tools are used to create small databases that are stored to
disk and then to store, fetch and remove records from those databases.
Note that these databases are much simpler than, say, SQL databases.
The databases follow the DBM format as created by the GDBM library
see <a href="Back_002dends.html#Back_002dends">Back-ends</a>.  Each record in a DBM database consists of a key and
a value.  All keys and values are stored as plain text, regardless of
their formats.
</p>
<p>First, you create a new database with <code>zdbc</code>:
</p>
<div class="example">
<pre class="example">$ zdbc foo.db

<p>The zeptodb tools are used to create small databases that are stored to
disk and then to store, fetch and remove records from those databases.
Note that these databases are much simpler than, say, SQL databases.
The databases follow the DBM format as created by the GDBM library
(see <a href="#Back_002dends">Back-ends</a>).  Each record in a DBM database consists of a key and
a value.  All keys and values are stored as plain text, regardless of
their formats.

<p>First, you create a new database with <code>zdbc</code>:

<div class="example">
<pre class="example">$ zdbc foo.db

   First, you create a new database with 'zdbc':

   You can customize the creation of a database in two ways.  The first
is by specifying the number of "buckets" that comprise the database,
