.SH SYNTAX

int cdb_init(struct cdb *\fIc\fR,int \fIfd\fR);

.SH DESCRIPTION
.B cdb_init
places information about \fIfd\fR into a struct cdb variable \fIc\fR.
\fIfd\fR has to be a seekable file previously opened for reading.

On systems that support mmap, cdb_init will try to map the whole
constant database into memory.

The inverse operation to cdb_init is cdb_free.
