This is the simplest database possible. It is kept in a plain text file. Each line in this file represents a single record, empty lines and lines beginning with ‘#’ (comments) sign are ignored. Records consist of fields, each field being a sequence of characters. Fields are separated by colons (‘:’, ASCII 58). If ‘:’ character occurs in a field, it is preceeded by a single backslash character (‘\\’, ASCII 92). A record must contain at least two fields.
The URL syntax for this type of databases is quite simple:
where path specifies absolute file name of the database file.
