Yeah, my mistake. *with*, not *without*. Sorry!

Thank you! I understood :)

Unfortunately, my aim using ZODB was, to store dictionaries of a size of ~3GB memory size to the hard drive, after the data has been read from there. Of course, this makes only sense, if retrieving the dictionaries from ZODB back to the RAM goes faster than parsing the original files via readline() again.
This could not be accomplished:
The transaction.commit() alone took over an our for a dictionary, which was initially parsed from a file in 5 Minutes! So i guess, using ZODB for large files is not recommended. But in the case of small files, my RAM is big enough anyway, so unfortunately ZODB should have no use for me at the moment, or should it?
