This project is part of the GNU Project.

GNU dbm is a library of database functions that use extensible hashing and works similar to the standard UNIX dbm functions. These routines are provided to a programmer needing to create and manipulate a hashed database.

For additional information about the project, including technical support and bug trackers, please refer to GNU dbm project site.

GNU dbm sources are available from its Git repository (see also instructions on accessing it). The Git repository at Savannah (see below) act as a read-only mirror thereof.
