NAME

Cache::Ref::LIFO - Saves entries until full, discarding subsequent sets.

SYNOPSIS

    my $c = Cache::Ref::LIFO->new( size => $n );
    $c->set( foo => 42 );
    $c->get("foo");

DESCRIPTION

This is a very naive cache algorithm, it saves cache sets until the cache is full, at which point all additional saves which aren't a value update are discarded immediately.
For very predictable workflows this is potentially a good fit, provided the MFU is used early on.
The advantages is that the code is very simple as a result.
