Memcache::set() stores an item
key on the
memcached server. Parameter
expire is expiration
time in seconds. If it's 0, the item never expires (but memcached server
doesn't guarantee this item to be stored all the time, it could be deleted
from the cache to make place for other items).
You can use MEMCACHE_COMPRESSED constant as
flag value if you want to use on-the-fly
compression (uses zlib).
Note: Remember that resource variables (i.e. file and connection descriptors) cannot be stored in the cache, because they cannot be adequately represented in serialized state.
The key that will be associated with the item.
The variable to store. Strings and integers are stored as is, other types are stored serialized.
Use MEMCACHE_COMPRESSED to store the item compressed (uses zlib).
Expiration time of the item. If it's equal to zero, the item will never expire. You can also use Unix timestamp or a number of seconds starting from current time, but in the latter case the number of seconds may not exceed 2592000 (30 days).
