Genezzo::Index::btHash - btree Hash tied hash class. Makes a persistent btree based upon Genezzo::Block::RDBlock look like a conventional hash.
use Genezzo::Index::btHash; my %tied_hash = (); my $tie_val = tie %tied_hash, 'Genezzo::Index::btHash';
btHash is a wrapper for Genezzo::Index::bt2, a btree class based upon Genezzo::Block::RDBlock. The tied hash is functionally complete, but not particularly efficient in some cases due to the "impedance mismatch" between the hash, btree and underlying RDBlock implementation.
