First, you create a new database with @command{zdbc}:

@example
$ zdbc foo.db
@end example

You can customize the creation of a database in two ways.  The first is
by specifying the number of "buckets" that comprise the database,
specified via the @option{-b}/@option{--num-buckets} option.  A DBM
database can be imagined as a series of buckets.  When a new item is
added, an algorithm determines which bucket it belongs in based on its
value.  Likewise, the same algorithm will be used in determining the
bucket from which to fetch an item.  If each bucket only contains a
maximum of one item, then you are guaranteed to be able to find any item
in the same amount of time as any other item.  On the other hand, if the
