[Melbourne-pm] Apache Cache

Hey Dudes

I need to cache some thumbnails in a mod perl Apache module.

The way that most systems seem to do it on CPAN is to use a "."  
directory in the same location, or some other top root directory via  

However it occurs to me with Cache::Cache, and other cache systems -  
and things like Apache::Cache, and lots of cache abilities built into  
top level apache etc etc - that there might be a better way.

Unfortunately Apache::Cache is a shared memory cache for memory  
between calls - which is not really much help for thumbnails (too  
much data). I could just do a directory cache, but then if someone  
wanted to move to Memcached (for example) that might make it harder.

Anyone any experience in this?

Ta dudes

Microsoft is not the answer. It's the question. And the answer is no.
