Makes you wonder what sort of coding situation it would be best suited for though, doesn't it?
The big drawback for a mud is the space being used by the cache which is impractical for most muds and unreasonable for any mud that's on a paid host with space limits.. so what sort of application would make that space for the cache worthwhile? Any thoughts?
I know this is an old topic but I decided to play around with ccache some more on our server and noticed that you can actually set your own size limits.
if you type ccache by itself you should get something like:
ccache, a compiler cache. Version 2.3
Copyright Andrew Tridgell, 2002
ccache compiler [compile options]
compiler [compile options] (via symbolic link)
-s show statistics summary
-z zero statistics
-c run a cache cleanup
-C clear the cache completely
-F <maxfiles> set maximum files in cache
-M <maxsize> set maximum size of cache (use G, M or K)
-h this help page
-V print version number
so you can set the max space by
ccache -M 20M
and that will set the max ccache size to 20 megs...I can also say that we have been using ccache on the dune server since my post about it being installed (above) and have not had any noticible problems even when changing quite a bit of code.
Anyways just my two cents on the matter.
Hope this helps someone,
