in reply to Caching Format

If even SQLite is overkill, how about just using Storable? I've used this in a couple of places where I just wanted my script to "remember" a single hash between runs and didn't have to worry about concurrency etc. All it really does is save you the trouble of formatting/parsing the file.

use Storable; store \%table, 'file'; $hashref = retrieve('file');

    Just keep in mind that Storable is specific to the perl version (version number + configuration + platform) it was compiled against. Changing the perl version may cause trouble. So Storable is ok for local temp data, but not as a transport format.


    Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)
