based) by default on ZFS which i guess should be very
useful for persons like me who do not want a full
fledged database with all SQL features. I am aware of
the existence of dbm/ndbm/gdbm, but i guess all
support hash. If my thoughts are wrong, pls correct
me. I also hope that i have sent to the correct

i don't know about the filesystem things, but if you want a data base to program with, you can have a look at dbopen(3) :)

As jurjen suggested, BDB can assist you in that way, but be aware of the caveats of using BDB over SQL (primarily the non-ATOM'ic property). But in terms of the C++ API, it only exists with the GNU friendly version of BDB (4.x) which is significantly different in terms of interface than the one packaged with libc in FreeBSD (1.85).
   See btree(3) for more info there.
