This contribution enables the osCommerce developer or advanced webmaster the ability to cache just about anything. Whether you need to cache a large array, template, or even [executable] PHP code this class can handle it.
Originally designed and coded to be a scalable alternative to filesystem cache for my Ultimate SEO URLs contribution it can be used for just about any cache need. This class can be the base for a database driven template system or global data cache on a per language basis. It is extremely flexible, robust, and fast.
As a forward, if you have no idea whether your store would benefit from cached data then this contribution is NOT for you. It is geared toward contribution developers and coders.
This is the base class that I'll be using for my contributions from now on. Also, it will serve as the core of my template engine :-)
