This is a major update. Please note that there have been significant changes to the interface via several changes to the options.


  • Removed support for Kyoto Cabinet. In order to be able to better long-term support the program, the decision was made to only support one DBM library.
  • Overhaul of options. All zeptodb programs now support a set of common options: --mmap-size, --cache-size, --block-size, --no-mmap, and --no-lock (in addition to the usual help, usage, version and verbose options). These options control how the database is opened. Please note that the --num-buckets option for zdbc has been removed since it was only appropriate for Kyoto Cabinet and was a misnomer for GDBM (it's effectively been replaced by --cache-size). The --sync option has also been added for commands that write changes to the database. Please see the documentation for a full explanation of these options.
  • zdbc always creates a new database. zdbc now overwrites a database if it's called on an existing file.
