internal package Foswiki::Cache

Virtual base class for cache implementations. A cache implementation is used by Foswiki::PageCache to store cached data (both page data and meta-data about the cached pages).

ClassMethod new( $session ) → $object

Construct a new cache delegator.

ObjectMethod init($session)

Initializes a cache object to be used for the current request. this object might be shared on multiple requests when Foswiki is accelerated using mod_perl or speedy-cgi and using the Foswiki::Cache::MemoryCache handler.

Subclasses should call up to this method at the start of overriding implementations.

ObjectMethod DESTROY()

Explicit destructor to break cyclic links.

ObjectMethod finish()

Clean up internal structures

ObjectMethod genkey($string, $key) → $key

Generate a key for the current cache.

Some cache implementations don't have a namespace feature. Those which do are only able to serve objects from within one namespace per cache object.

So by default we encode the namespace into the key here, even when this is redundant, given that you specify the namespace for Cache::Cache implementations during the constructor already.

ObjectMethod set($key, $object ... ) → $boolean

Cache an $object under the given $key. Note that the object won't be flushed to disk until we called finish().

Returns true if it was stored sucessfully

ObjectMethod get($key) → $object

Retrieve a cached object, returns undef if it does not exist

ObjectMethod delete($key) → $boolean

Delete an entry for a given $key

Returns true if the key was found and deleted, and false otherwise

ObjectMethod clear()

Removes all objects from the cache.
