Manual Reference Pages - CACHE::AGAINSTFILE::STORABLE (3)
Cache::AgainstFile::Storable - cache data structures parsed from files in Storable files
my $cache = new Cache::AgainstFile(
Method => Storable,
CacheDir => /var/tmp/cache/myapp,
$data = $cache->get($filename);
Data structures parsed from files are cached in shadow storable files.
If parsing is significantly more expensive than file I/O (e.g. with XML files),
then this will offer some benefit.
This backend is suitable for non-persistent environments (e.g. CGI scripts)
where you want the cache to outlive the process. For persistent environments,
the Memory backend may be more suitable as it saves on file I/O.
count() and size() are relatively expensive operations involving scanning the cache directory.
Directory in which to store cache files. This is mandatory.
Purge items older than this.
Value is in seconds (default=undefined=infinity)
Purge oldest items from the cache to reduce the number of items in the cache to be at most this number.
Value should be an integer (default=undefined=infinity)
Dont stat files to validate the cache - items are served from the cache until they are purged.
Valid values are 0|1 (default=0, i.e. files are statted)
Valid values are Flock and AtomicWrite (default is AtomicWrite).
If neither of these are to your taste, consider using Cache::AgainstFile::CacheModule with another caching module.
Some other file caching modules on CPAN are:
