2 Install Database, Python, Perl

"exodus" package installs exodus-cli, libexodus-perl, libexodus-python, libpgexodus and postgresql. Note that Exodus Debian/Ubuntu package names are often prefixed with "lib" compared to other Linux distros.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install exodus

3 Quick Test

#python one liner to write a multivalue database record (after creating xyzfile)
createfile xyzfile
python -c 'from exodus import *;print var("abc123").write("xyzfile","key123")'
#perl one liner to read back the record
#the syntax is long winded because exodus isnt properly implemented in perl yet
perl -e 'use exo;$record=new exo::var(""); $filename=new exo::var("xyzfile"); $key=new exo::var("key123"); \
 print $record->read($filename,$key);print $record,"\n"'
list xyzfile
deletefile xyzfile
