Replace value of the existing item ()
bool Memcache::replace ( string key, mixed var [, int flag [, int expire]] )

Memcache::replace() should be used to replace value of existing item with key. In case if item with such key doesn't exists, Memcache::replace() returns FALSE. For the rest Memcache::replace() behaves similarly to Memcache::set(). Also you can use memcache_replace() function.



The key that will be associated with the item.


The variable to store. Strings and integers are stored as is, other types are stored serialized.


Use MEMCACHE_COMPRESSED to store the item compressed (uses zlib).


Expiration time of the item. If it's equal to zero, the item will never expire. You can also use Unix timestamp or a number of seconds starting from current time, but in the latter case the number of seconds may not exceed 2592000 (30 days).

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.


Example 1320. Memcache::replace() example


= memcache_connect('memcache_host', 11211);

/* procedural API */
memcache_replace($memcache_obj, "test_key", "some variable", false, 30);

/* OO API */
$memcache_obj->replace("test_key", "some variable", false, 30);
