More likely than not, you're right. I did the binary install of the Windows
bits, so your response makes me think I need to get all of the source and
install that too, right? Easy enough.

>>Python specific construction known as a "Pickle."
I wondered what a Pickle was in this context. Now I know. :)

Ok, I think you must not have correctly installed Spambayes.  The readme
includes installation instructions.  You cannot simply download particular
pieces of spambayes from cvs, or run the scripts without installing them.  
They're all interdependent.

As for the db, it is bsddb3 by default.  There is no published schema.  
However, if there were, I don't think it would help you access the database
from perl, as the information in the database is stored in a Python specific
construction known as a "Pickle."  I'm not aware of any picklers for perl...

On the plus side, if you can do perl, then python will be a very quick study
for you...
