Hi all.

I'm looking for a text database for a guestbook/forum application. I could (and would actually like) use a mysql database but I want to be really portable and not have to worry about hosts having mysql available.

I thought DBM fit the bill but I can't find much about it in an easy to read format and as far as I can tell it only stores pairs of data (key,value).

If anyone can say otherwise and provide a simple example site listing DBM code I would be very grateful.

I could also spit out delimited data as text into a file myself but then i have to worry about such aspects as escaping newlines and the delimiters themselves.

Thanks
:)
