a library of routines for managing a database.
Kyoto Cabinet is a library of routines for managing a database. The database is a simple data file containing records, each is a pair of a key and a value. Every key and value is serial bytes with variable length. Both binary data and character string can be used as a key and a value. There is neither concept of data tables nor data types. Records are organized in hash table. Kyoto Cabinet is developed as the successor of Tokyo Cabinet on the following purposes. They are achieved and Kyoto Cabinet replaces conventional DBM products.
- improves space efficiency : smaller size of database file.
- improves parallelism : higher performance in multi-thread environment.
- improves portability : abstraction of the lower layer to support non-POSIX systems.
- improves usability : simplified API, object-oriented design.
