DBCursor Methods

close()

Discards the cursor. If the cursor is created within a transaction then you must be sure to close the cursor before commiting the transaction. More info…

count(flags=0)

Returns a count of the number of duplicate data items for the key referenced by the cursor. More info…

delete(flags=0)

Deletes the key/data pair currently referenced by the cursor. More info…

dup(flags=0)

Create a new cursor. More info…

set_priority(priority)

Set the cache priority for pages referenced by the DBC handle. More info…

get_priority()

Returns the cache priority for pages referenced by the DBC handle. More info…

put(key, data, flags=0, dlen=- 1, doff=- 1)

Stores the key/data pair into the database. Partial data records can be written using dlen and doff. More info…

get(flags, dlen=- 1, doff=- 1)

See get(key, data, flags, dlen=-1, doff=-1) below.

get(key, flags, dlen=- 1, doff=- 1)

See get(key, data, flags, dlen=-1, doff=-1) below.

get(key, data, flags, dlen=- 1, doff=- 1)

Retrieves key/data pairs from the database using the cursor. All the specific functionalities of the get method are actually provided by the various methods below, which are the preferred way to fetch data using the cursor. These generic interfaces are only provided as an inconvenience. Partial data records are returned if dlen and doff are used in this method and in many of the specific methods below. More info…

pget(flags, dlen=- 1, doff=- 1)

See pget(key, data, flags, dlen=-1, doff=-1) below.

pget(key, flags, dlen=- 1, doff=- 1)

See pget(key, data, flags, dlen=-1, doff=-1) below.

pget(key, data, flags, dlen=- 1, doff=- 1)

Similar to the already described get(). This method is available only on secondary databases. It will return the primary key, given the secondary one, and associated data More info…

DBCursor Get Methods

These DBCursor methods are all wrappers around the get() function in the C API.

current(flags=0, dlen=- 1, doff=- 1)

Returns the key/data pair currently referenced by the cursor. More info…

get_current_size()

Returns length of the data for the current entry referenced by the cursor.

first(flags=0, dlen=- 1, doff=- 1)

Position the cursor to the first key/data pair and return it. More info…

last(flags=0, dlen=- 1, doff=- 1)

Position the cursor to the last key/data pair and return it. More info…

next(flags=0, dlen=- 1, doff=- 1)

Position the cursor to the next key/data pair and return it. More info…

prev(flags=0, dlen=- 1, doff=- 1)

Position the cursor to the previous key/data pair and return it. More info…

consume(flags=0, dlen=- 1, doff=- 1)

For a database with the Queue access method, returns the record number and data from the first available record and deletes it from the queue.

NOTE: This method is deprecated in Oracle Berkeley DB version 3.2 in favor of the new consume method in the DB class.

get_both(key, data, flags=0)

Like set() but positions the cursor to the record matching both key and data. (An alias for this is set_both, which makes more sense to me…) More info…

get_recno()

Return the record number associated with the cursor. The database must use the BTree access method and have been created with the DB_RECNUM flag. More info…

join_item(flags=0)

For cursors returned from the DB.join method, returns the combined key value from the joined cursors. More info…

next_dup(flags=0, dlen=- 1, doff=- 1)

If the next key/data pair of the database is a duplicate record for the current key/data pair, the cursor is moved to the next key/data pair of the database, and that pair is returned. More info…

next_nodup(flags=0, dlen=- 1, doff=- 1)

The cursor is moved to the next non-duplicate key/data pair of the database, and that pair is returned. More info…

prev_dup(flags=0, dlen=- 1, doff=- 1)

If the previous key/data pair of the database is a duplicate data record for the current key/data pair, the cursor is moved to the previous key/data pair of the database, and that pair is returned. More info…

prev_nodup(flags=0, dlen=- 1, doff=- 1)

The cursor is moved to the previous non-duplicate key/data pair of the database, and that pair is returned. More info…

set(key, flags=0, dlen=- 1, doff=- 1)

Move the cursor to the specified key in the database and return the key/data pair found there. More info…

set_range(key, flags=0, dlen=- 1, doff=- 1)

Identical to set() except that in the case of the BTree access method, the returned key/data pair is the smallest key greater than or equal to the specified key (as determined by the comparison function), permitting partial key matches and range searches. More info…

set_recno(recno, flags=0, dlen=- 1, doff=- 1)

Move the cursor to the specific numbered record of the database, and return the associated key/data pair. The underlying database must be of type Btree and it must have been created with the DB_RECNUM flag. More info…

set_both(key, data, flags=0)

See get_both(). The only difference in behaviour can be disabled using set_get_returns_none(2). More info…
