So, I tried something simple yesterday adding a call to anydbm to a python program that I plan to distribute on windows with py2exe. Doing so I ran into this error:
ImportError: no dbm clone found; tried ['dbhash', 'gdbm', 'dbm', 'dumbdbm']
Turns out that the way py2exe works though it misses the dependency that anydbm has on a db module. The moral of the story is that if you want to use anydbm and py2exe you need to do something like:
import anydbm, dbhash f = anydbm.open("dbname.db", "c") ...
