PHP simple cached cURL

Dirk Ginader

very simple wrapper for cURL that creates a local file cache

usage: created a folder named "cache" in the same folder as this file and chmod it 777 call this function with 2+1 parameters:

$curlReturn = simpleCachedCurl($url,$expires,$debug);

$url (string) the URL of the data that you would like to load
$expires (integer) the amound of seconds the cache should stay valid
$debug (boolean, optional) write debug information for troubleshooting

returns either the raw cURL data or false if request fails and no cache is available
