Since RIPE convention is to use .db, naming gets confusing. -rw-r----- 1 curtis staff 20506746 Sep 24 23:43 ripe.db -rw-r----- 1 curtis staff 18292736 Sep 25 19:33 ripe.db.db -rw-r----- 1 curtis staff 4280320 Sep 25 19:33 ripe.db.cl.db The ripe.db.db and ripe.db.cl.db is the classfull and classless index. A total of 22 MB rather than the 700 MB you have. Remeber that the index files are just supposed to have key/offset pairs and should be smaller than the data itself as long as the storage method is not grossly inefficient. The old DBM *is* grossly inefficient and NDBM is not much better. I suggest you try relinking perl with BSD DB. This has nothing to do with which perl you are using. I'm also using perl 4.036 (4.0 pathlevel 36). I'm not sure what your error is coming from. We couldn't get any of this to run right on AIX, so if you are using AIX, that may be part of your problem. :-( Curtis
