Hi,

I'm trying to write out a large database file using anydbm.
However, it's quite slow.  Writing out a 200 meg file can take hours.

In fact, I do most of the work using an internal map and write out
that map at the end since I thought this would be faster.  (I have
lots of memory.) However, it's still very slow.

Any hints?

Amir
