When using the Db.DB_APPEND option of the Db.put method, it may be useful to modify the stored data based on the generated key. If a callback method is specified using the Db.set_append_recno method, it will be called after the record number has been selected, but before the data has been stored. The callback function must throw a DbException object to encapsulate the error on failure. That object will be thrown to caller of Db.put.

The called function must take three arguments: a reference to the enclosing database handle; the data Dbt to be stored; and the selected record number. The called function may then modify the data Dbt.

The Db.set_append_recno method configures operations performed using the specified Db handle, not all operations performed on the underlying database.

The Db.set_append_recno interface may not be called after the interface is called.

The Db.set_append_recno method throws an exception that encapsulates a non-zero error value on failure.
