shelve file name extention

Hi All,
When I am using shelve on my local machine it generates the db file as
given filename. But in another machine it's generating <filename>.dat
and .dir.
can anyone tell me how can I force sheve module to write the db in
<filename>.dir and <filename>.dat, instead of <filename>? Do I have to
install a specific version of the python?

Thanks...

MonuWhen I am using shelve on my local machine it generates the db
Monufile as given filename. But in another machine it's generating
Monu<filename>.dat and .dir. can anyone tell me how can I force sheve
Monumodule to write the db in <filename>.dir and <filename>.dat,
Monuinstead of <filename>? Do I have to install a specific version of
Monuthe python?

Shelve is just a thin layer on top of a concrete db file module. Sounds
like on your two machines there are different underlying db file modules
available. You're pretty much at the mercy of those modules as to file
naming. All you are giving it when opening a shelve file is the prefix.

Thanks Skip.
So Can't I choose which module to use. Is there any preferance on
which shelve chooses these modules?
