Cache::Object -- the data stored in a Cache.

Cache::Object(3pm) User Contributed Perl Documentation Cache::Object(3pm)

NAME

Cache::Object -- the data stored in a Cache.

DESCRIPTION

Object is used by classes implementing the Cache interface as an object oriented wrapper around the data. End users will not normally use Object directly, but it can be retrieved via the get_object method on the Cache::Cache interface.

SYNOPSIS

 use Cache::Object;
 my $object = new Cache::Object( );
 $object->set_key( $key );
 $object->set_data( $data );
 $object->set_expires_at( $expires_at );
 $object->set_created_at( $created_at );

METHODS

new( )
Construct a new Cache::Object.

PROPERTIES

(get|set)_accessed_at
The time at which the object was last accessed. Various cache implementations will use the accessed_at property to store information for LRU algorithms. There is no guarantee that all caches will update this field, however.
(get|set)_created_at
The time at which the object was created.
(get|set)_data
A scalar containing or a reference pointing to the data to be stored.
(get|set)_expires_at
The time at which the object should expire from the cache.
(get|set)_key
The key under which the object was stored.
(get|set)_size
The size of the frozen version of this object
