Perl extension for unified cache interface
CHI provides a unified caching API, designed to assist a developer in persisting data for a specified period of time.
The CHI interface is implemented by driver classes that support fetching, storing and clearing of data. Driver classes exist or will exist for the gamut of storage backends available to Perl, such as memory, plain files, memory mapped files, memcached, and DBI.
CHI is intended as an evolution of DeWitt Clinton’s CacheCache package, adhering to the basic Cache API but adding new features and addressing limitations in the CacheCache implementation.
