IPC-SharedCache (1.3) ***

IPC shared memory is still faster (and nicer) than database hits, especially for something like database-driven configuration and status variables.

It would be nice if a single cache handle could have multiple sections, each serviced by separate callbacks - right now doing this means having separate ipc_key's for each row-bound table cache.

To what other "irritating problems" do you refer?

IPC-SharedCache (1.3) *

This module should not be used. IPC shared memory is no faster than filesystem access and suffers from a host of irritating problems. I keep this module around only to maintain backwards compatibility with HTML::Template's shared_cache mode.
