Port of Cache::Memcached from Perl 5 to Perl 6
Perl6 Perl

Cache::Memcached Build Status

Perl6 client for memcached a distributed caching daemon.


  use Cache::Memcached;

  my $memd =;

  $memd.set("my_key", "Some value");

  $memd.incr("key", 2);


This provides an interface to the memcached daemon. You will need to have access to a memcached server to be able to use it.

Currently there is no support for compression or the serialization of structured objects (though both could be provided by the agency of external modules.)


Assuming you have a working perl6 installation you should be able to install this with ufo :

make test
make install

ufo can be installed with panda for rakudo:

panda install ufo

Or you can install directly with "panda":

# From the source directory

panda install .

# Remote installation

panda install Cache::Memcached

Other install mechanisms may be become available in the future.


This should be considered experimental software until such time that Perl 6 reaches an official release. However suggestions/patches are welcomed via github at
