I've been searching the wiki/googling for this but couldn't find anything. Can someone help me?

Thanks in advance
Unlike traditional banking where clients have only a few account numbers, with Bitcoin people can create an unlimited number of accounts (addresses). This can be used to easily track payments, and it improves anonymity.

It is a Berkeley DB binary database file.

https://github.com/gavinandresen/bitcointools  has fairly easy to read python code for parsing it-- see

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?
