New submission from Arthur Vanwalleghen:
When I tried to work with GDBM and Ndbm files I saw that their supporting modules were not found. This can be verified with Pydoc:
Pydoc\Python36-32\lib \dbm(package)\Package Contents\gnu|ndbm
ErrorDuringImport: problem in dbm.gnu - ModuleNotFoundError: No module named '_gdbm'
ErrorDuringImport: problem in dbm.ndbm - ModuleNotFoundError: No module named '_dbm'
I first noticed this in 3.5 and waited to see if it was fixed in 3.6. I am running Win8.1.
I want to work with files created on Linux/Perl using GDBM or NDBM. I cannot find any perl support for Python's dbm.dumb. I am looking for an out-of-the-box support for simple key/data files.
