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 guarentee 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
