BerkeleyDB sounds like something to look at. Did a "locate Berkeley" cmd 
and nothing popped out. Is it called something else?

Writing csh scripts manipulating text files containing lists of IP 
address. Don't want any port as a required dependent. I though I 
remembered that BerkeleyDB came with the base system, but can not find 
what its named.
