feedcache 1.3: purging and redirects
feedcache provides class to wrap Mark Pilgrim’s FeedParser module so that parameters can be used to cache the feed results locally instead of fetching the feed every time it is requested.
Release 1.3 of feedcache is available. This version supports purging the cache by the age of the contents.
After some discussion with Thomas Perl about how to handle redirects, I decided to leave the existing behavior alone. That means redirected feeds are returned, but not stored in the cache. It’s up to the caller to recognize that a feed was redirected and update the list of URLs being checked, depending on the actual response code.
