GNU dbm is a set of database routines that use extendible hashing and
works similar to the standard UNIX dbm routines.

This is release 1.7.3 of GNU dbm.

To compile gdbm:

   a)  configure <config parameters like -prefix ... see INSTALL>
   b)  make 

To compile the optional test and conversion programs:

   a)  make progs

To install the basic package:

   a)  make install

To install the optional dbm and ndbm compatibility headers:

   a)  make install-compat

(You might want to "make -n install" to make sure it will put things
were you want them.)

Please report bugs to
	bug-gnu-utils@prep.ai.mit.edu
