cdb_init(3) open a constant database


#include <cdb.h>

int cdb_init(struct cdb *c,int fd);


cdb_init places information about fd into a struct cdb variable c. fd has to be a seekable file previously opened for reading.

On systems that support mmap, cdb_init will try to map the whole constant database into memory.

The inverse operation to cdb_init is cdb_free.
