Lua – Simple method to use Memcache

Published on Author gryzliLeave a comment

If you need fast and lightweight method of connecting with Memcache daemon, you can do it by just using the ‘socket’ module and open a TCP connection to the Memcache daemon. 

After you have your connection done to Memcache, you could issue all kind of commands for getting/storing information. 

 

Code

 

The following piece of code (checkInMemcache) , could be used to make a simple check if a given key string exists in your Memcache. 

This could be easily extended to whatever your need is (setting,getting keys …). 

 

Dependencies:

You are going to need at least lua “socket” library in order to use this function. 

If you are using Centos, you can get ‘socket’ by installing the package: lua-socket
