NAME ^

Tie::Cache::LRU::Array - Tie::Cache::LRU implemented using arrays

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Tie::Cache::LRU::Array;

  tie %cache, 'Tie::Cache::LRU::Array', 500;

  ...the rest is as Tie::Cache::LRU...

DESCRIPTION ^

This is an alternative implementation of Tie::Cache::LRU using Perl arrays and built-in array operations instead of a linked list. The theory is that even though the algorithm employed is more expensive, it will still be faster for small cache sizes (where small <= ??) because the work is done inside perl (ie. higer big O, lower constant). If nothing else, it should use less memory.
