BerkeleyDB: Graduating from text files; tutorial? - PERL Modules

I've been using tab-delimited text files for my scripts' data files, and wish to "graduate" to using BerkeleyDB. (Scalability...) Is there a good tutorial somewhere? (BTW, I am assuming that BDB will have a much simpler interface than DBI. Is that a correct assumption?) Also, I have been using basically Perl 4 constructs, as I've never understood the 5.x $-> notation. Is there a good tutorial for that, too? Also, is B. DB itself (sleepycat's, not the Perl interface) free? If so, how is it supported? If not, how much does it cost? thanks, -Walter San Francisco, CA [url]http://www.natural-innovations.com/[/url]...

    Probably. It's far less complex.
