 NAME
      libmemcached - Client library for memcached

 LIBRARY
      C Client Library for memcached (libmemcached, -lmemcached)

 SYNOPSIS
        #include <memcached.h>

 DESCRIPTION
      "Memcached is a high-performance, distributed memory object caching
      system, generic in nature, but intended for use in speeding up dynamic
      web applications by alleviating database load."
      <http://danga.com/memcached/>

      libmemcached is a small, thread-safe client library for the memcached
      protocol. The code has all been written with an eye to allow for both
      web and embedded usage. It handles the work behind routing particular
      keys to specific servers that you specify (and values are matched
      based on server order as supplied by you). It implements both a modula
      and consistent method of object distribution.

      There are multiple implemented routing and hashing methods. See the
      memcached_behavior_set() manpage.

      All operations are performed against a "memcached_st" structure.
      These structures can either be dynamically allocated or statically
      allocated and then initialized by memcached_create(). Functions have
      been written in order to encapsulate the "memcached_st". It is not
      recommended that you operate directly against the structure.

      Nearly all functions return a "memcached_return_t" value.  This value
      can be translated to a printable string with memcached_strerror(3).

      Partitioning based on keys is supported in the library. Using the key
      partioning functions it is possible to group sets of object onto
      servers.

      "memcached_st" structures are thread-safe, but each thread must
      contain its own structure (that is, if you want to share these among
      threads you must provide your own locking). No global variables are
      used in this library.

      If you are working with GNU autotools you will want to add the
      following to your configure.ac to properly include libmemcached in
      your application.

      Some features of the library must be enabled through
      memcached_behavior_set().

      Hope you enjoy it!

 CONSTANTS
      A number of constants have been provided for in the library.

      MEMCACHED_DEFAULT_PORT
          The default port used by memcached(3).

      MEMCACHED_MAX_KEY
          Default maximum size of a key (which includes the null pointer).
          Master keys have no limit, this only applies to keys used for
          storage.

      MEMCACHED_MAX_KEY
          Default size of key (which includes the null pointer).

      MEMCACHED_STRIDE
          This is the "stride" used in the consistent hash used between
          replicas.

      MEMCACHED_MAX_HOST_LENGTH
          Maximum allowed size of the hostname.

      MEMCACHED_VERSION_STRING
          String value of libmemcached version such as "1.23.4"

      MEMCACHED_MAJOR_VERSION
          Major version value. Such as 1.23.4, would be 1

      MEMCACHED_MINOR_VERSION
          Major version value. Such as 1.23.4, would be 23

      MEMCACHED_MICRO_VERSION
          Major version value. Such as 1.23.4, would be 4

 THREADS AND PROCESSES
      When using threads or forked processes it is important to keep an
      instance of "memcached_st" per process or thread. Without creating
      your own locking structures you can not share a single "memcached_st".
      You can though call memcached_quit(3) on a "memcached_st" and then use
      the resulting cloned structure.
