Toke ==== Requires at least Erlang/OTP R13B01 Toke is a very minimal Erlang driver for Tokyo Cabinet. It only wraps the hash API (tchdb*) and doesn't even implement all of that. All keys and values must be binaries. When you install Tokyo Cabinet, if you're on a 32-bit machine, don't forget to pass the --enable-off64 flag to configure, otherwise 'large' support won't work. You will want to read both the Tokyo Cabinet API Spec ( http://1978th.net/tokyocabinet/spex-en.html#tchdbapi ) and at least the Public API section of toke_drv.erl. Also see toke_test.erl for how to use it.
