merle : An erlang based memcached client.
Version : 0.3
Author : Joe Williams <>
Contributors : Nick Gerakines <>,
Denis Pauk <>
Info :
merle uses LShift's gen_server2 module/behavior for faster message queues.
Note: if you not want use gen_server2 - replace all occurrence gen_server2 to gen_server.
This code is available as Open Source Software under the MIT license.
* Support for stats, version, getkey, getskey, delete, set, add, replace, cas, flushall, verbosity
* Uses term_to_binary and binary_to_term to serialize/deserialize Erlang terms before sending/receiving them. This allows for native Erlang terms to be returned from memcached but doesn't play well using other languages after setting values with merle or using merle to get values set by other languages.
Merle Based Projects:
* Connecting to memcached *
Using defaults:
> merle:connect().
Set your own:
> merle:connect("HOSTNAME", 11211).
* A few operations *
> merle:set(a, asdf).
> merle:getkey(a).
> merle:set(a, asdf).
> merle:getskey(a).
> merle:cas(a, 4, asdfasdf).
> merle:getskey(a).
> merle:delete(a).
Use universal set (can save only list and can be getted from other language):
> merle:setlist("/dfghj",10,"subpage").
> merle:getkeylist("/dfghj").
* Informational commands *
> merle:version().
