This class can be used to cache variable values in PHP scripts.

It can take the value of a variable and generate a cache file, if it does not exist already, that is PHP script that assigns the variable value.

The class can also load variable value from the cache file script if it exists and it is not expired.

The cache file may be invalidated by removing the cache file script.

Sometimes it is necessary to store the results of an intensive processing job in a cache storage, so it can be reused many times without having to go through the same intensive processing job again.

This class provides a solution for storing the values of variables that result from a processing job.

It generates a PHP script file that assigns the values of the variables. This way it can be loaded much faster using a PHP opcode cache extension that may be available under the current PHP installation.
