public void set_re_delim(int re_delim) throws DbException;


Set the delimiting byte used to mark the end of a record in the backing source file for the Recno access method.

This byte is used for variable length records if the re_source file is specified. If the re_source file is specified and no delimiting byte was specified, <newline> characters (that is, ASCII 0x0a) are interpreted as end-of-record markers.

The Db.set_re_delim method configures a database, not only operations performed using the specified Db handle.

The Db.set_re_delim interface may not be called after the interface is called. If the database already exists when is called, the information specified to Db.set_re_delim will be ignored.

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


The Db.set_re_delim method may fail and throw an exception encapsulating a non-zero error for the following conditions:

An invalid flag value or parameter was specified.

Called after was called.

The Db.set_re_delim method may fail and throw an exception for errors specified for other Berkeley DB and C library or system methods. If a catastrophic error has occurred, the Db.set_re_delim method may fail and throw a DbRunRecoveryException, in which case all subsequent Berkeley DB calls will fail in the same way.
