Module dbrecio


File-like objects that read from or write to a bsddb record.

This implements (nearly) all stdio methods.

f = DBRecIO(db, key, txn=None)
f.close()           # explicitly release resources held
flag = f.isatty()   # always false
pos = f.tell()      # get current position
f.seek(pos)         # set current position
f.seek(pos, mode)   # mode 0: absolute; 1: relative; 2: relative to EOF
buf = f.read()      # read until EOF
buf = f.read(n)     # read up to n bytes
f.truncate([size])  # truncate file at to at most size (default: current pos)
f.write(buf)        # write at current position
f.writelines(list)  # for line in list: f.write(line)

Notes:
- fileno() is left unimplemented so that code which uses it triggers
  an exception early.
- There's a simple test set (see end of this file) - not yet updated
  for DBRecIO.
- readline() is not implemented yet.
