DESCRIPTION:
============
Oracle Berkeley DB is the industry-leading open source, embeddable 
database engine that provides developers with fast, reliable, local persistence 
with zero administration. Oracle Berkeley DB is a library that links directly 
into your application. Your application makes simple function calls, rather than 
sending messages to a remote server, eliminating the performance penalty of 
client-server architectures. Oracle Berkeley DB eliminates the overhead of SQL query 
processing, enabling applications with predictable access patterns to run faster.


UPDATE:
=======
To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on the
http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your system.
Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick up 'db../libdb../tcl-db..'
from the 'Database Libs' category (it should already be selected).

DOWNLOAD:
=========
Note that downloads from sources.redhat.com (aka cygwin.com) aren't
allowed due to bandwidth limitations.  This means that you will need to
find a mirror which has this update, please choose the one nearest to you:
http://cygwin.com/mirrors.html

QUESTIONS:
==========
If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing list is
the appropriate place.
