dbmnextkey --  Retrieves the next key from a DBM database


string dbmnextkey ( resource dbm_identifier, string key )

Returns the next key after key. By calling dbmfirstkey() followed by successive calls to dbmnextkey() it is possible to visit every key/value pair in the dbm database. For example:

Example 1. Visiting every key/value pair in a DBM database


$key = dbmfirstkey($dbm_id);
while ($key) {
    echo "$key = " . dbmfetch($dbm_id, $key) . "\n";
    $key = dbmnextkey($dbm_id, $key);
