Description: ------------ Greetings, it would be very useful for me to have something like a extendLife($time) method. The idea is that I have 1 filecache/user on my website (to cache some data rarely used that shouldn't be store in $_SESSION). As long as they're connected (it can vary from 30 seconds to 1 hour) I don't want the cache file to be removed. But as there is a lot of hourly connections I don't want to set a 1 hour life, I'd rather use ->extendLife($time) or whatever each time the cache is valid. Example : include_once("PEAR/Cache/Lite.php"); $cache = new Cache_Lite(array( "lifeTime" => 10 * 60, "automaticCleaningFactor" => 1000, "hashedDirectoryLevel" => 2 )); if ($data = $cache->get($iduser)) { ... $cache->extendLife(15*60); // extend life with another 10 minutes } else { // Regenerate data } Is there a way to do it right now ? Thank you in advance Take care

I think it's easy to implement this, i will try to add into 1.7.0 beta 2

Ok extendLife() is implemented in CVS but without the lifetime argument (technical reasons). When called, the cache is "touched", so it will be ok for another lifeTime period.
