Re: Bug #23053
Sorry James... I didn't mean to create misunderstanding.
I think I meant gdbm. It's deprecated? Is there something faster for doing the
kinds of modifications to the user db that are typically needed, in a fast way?
I see that you're against non-ascii for these databases, but I'm primarily
concerned with speed for things like adding an existing user to a group having
a fairly large population of members, among other groups in the database also
having large populations. (By 'large', I don't mean anything larger than 100
members in a single group, nor smaller than 15, at least for the moment.)
I'll probably create a perl program for doing mass updates of students into
classes (in unix-ese: users into secondary groups)... but this would involve
direct tinkering with the group db in perl... so release of it as a package
might be out of the question :)
