This class can be used to store and retrieve cached values from single file.

It can store one or more keys in a single cache file.

The class can also look up for a given key and retrieve the store value.

It can lock the file during access to prevent corruption, but there is also a sub-class that can be used to access the cache file without locking it.

It can automatically clean-up the least recently used entries to free space.

Many sites use caching solutions to gain performance by storing the contents of pages in files on the first page access, thus avoiding the overhead of generating the page contents again in subsequent accesses.

Sites with many pages may need to use many cache files or directories, which in turn may lead to significant cache file access overhead.

This class implements an alternative approach by caching the contents of many pages in a single file.
