This is the home page for the yet unfinished rebol memcached:// protocol. The current version
is 0.5, indicating that it's not even a first release. Once I have implemented an ordinary
read memcached:// ... function, I will call it version 1.0.

The impatient will find the file here:
Simply open a port the way you usually do:
port: open memcached://server.name.here/.
insert whatever you like. Read
the memcached protocol
if you don't know how to use memcached. With this protocol, what you
is either a string, for simple commands like
stats, or a block, for storing
data in memcached.
Block inserts have two components: a string and a value. The string is a memcached command like
append. The only thing to
remember, is to replace the
bytes parameter with a question mark. The
protocol will calculate the bytes used by the molded rebol value and replace the question mark for you. Se
the examples section underneath if you need examples.
Don't add newline characters to your commands. Memcached wants
^M^/) at the end of each command
and as a delimiter after object values, but again, the protocol handler will fix that for you.
port: open memcached://servername.here/ insert port "stats" print copy port insert port ["set my-money 00 9000 ? noreply" $45] insert port "get my-money" print copy port close port
If or when you find a bug in the memcached protocol's behaviour, please do send me an email about it. My address is [my initials (see rebol header) @ the server that hosts this page]. Thanks.
