NAME

CHI::CacheObject - Contains information about cache entries

VERSION

version 0.60

SYNOPSIS

    my $object = $cache->get_object($key);
    
    my $key        = $object->key();
    my $value      = $object->value();
    my $expires_at = $object->expires_at();
    my $created_at = $object->created_at();
    if ($object->is_expired()) { ... }

DESCRIPTION

The CHI method returns this object if the key exists. The object will be returned even if the entry has expired, as long as it has not been removed.
There is currently no public API for creating one of these objects directly.

METHODS

All methods are read-only. The get_* methods are provided for backward compatibility with Cache::Cache's Cache::Object.
key
The key.
value
The value.
expires_at
get_expires_at
Epoch time at which item expires.
created_at
get_created_at
Epoch time at which item was last written to.
is_expired
Returns boolean indicating whether item has expired. This may be probabilistically determined if an "expires_variance" was used.
