open(*args) public

If called without a block, this is synonymous to GDBM::new. If a block is given, the new GDBM instance will be passed to the block as a parameter, and the corresponding database file will be closed after the execution of the block code has been finished.

Example for an open call with a block:

require 'gdbm'
GDBM.open("fruitstore.db") do |gdbm|
  gdbm.each_pair do |key, value|
    print "#{key}: #{value}\n"
