  Cache - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In computer science, a cache (pronounced "cash") is a collection of data duplicating original values stored elsewhere or computed earlier, where the original data is expensive (usually in terms of access time) to fetch or compute relative to reading the cache.
Caches have proven extremely effective in many areas of computing because access patterns in typical computer applications have locality of reference.
The cache of disk sectors in main memory is usually managed by the operating system kernel or file system.

 CPU cache - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A CPU cache is a cache used by the central processing unit of a computer to reduce the average time to access memory.
A victim cache is a cache used to hold blocks evicted from a CPU cache due to a conflict or capacity miss.
This cache is generally implemented on a separate chip from the CPU, and, as of 2004, may range in size from 2 to 256 megabytes.

 A View to a Kill: Michael Haneke's "Cache"
"Cache"'s been justifiably congratulated for reading the proverbial writing on the wall, virtually guaranteeing itself movie-of-the moment status while Paris (and Australia, and God knows where next...) are burning; it's that sense of now-ness which almost vibrates life into the film's dead-air dialogues and vacuum-packed characterizations.
In "Cache", this instability is more explicit: Haneke wants us to know that we cannot hide from the consequences of racial neglect, and the entire film is constructed like a warning against self-delusion.
In "Cache", the Laurents' hidden watcher is the judge of us all, and just as likely to be a manifestation of Georges's own conscience as a figure from the past with closure on his mind.

 cache - Hutchinson encyclopedia article about cache
In other cases, the memory cache is normal DRAM, but is used to store frequently used instructions and data that would normally be accessed from backing storage.
Read cache is used to store copies of data and instructions that are retrieved from main memory or mass storage.
The data is subsequently moved to its permanent location by the cache controller, a process that takes more time because main memory and mass storage devices are much slower to access than cache memory.

 Caching Tutorial for Web Authors and Webmasters
Proxy caches are a type of shared cache; rather than just having one person using them, they usually have a large number of users, and because of this they are very good at reducing latency and network traffic.
Also known as “reverse proxy caches” or “surrogate caches,” gateway caches are also intermediaries, but instead of being deployed by network administrators to save bandwidth, they’re typically deployed by Webmasters themselves, to make their sites more scalable, reliable and better performing.
Some caches do allow their administrators to prioritize what kinds of representations are kept, and some allow representations to be “pinned” in cache, so that they’re always available.

 Web Cache Reference @ InternetNavigator.com (Internet Navigator)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Web caching is the caching of web documents (HTML pages, images, etc.) in order to reduce bandwidth usage and web site access times.
HTTP has a relatively complicated set of features that user agents and origin servers can use to control whether or not documents are stored in a cache, and when cached copies may be reused.
Server-side caches, also known as reverse-caches and web accelerators, are placed in front of origin servers to reduce their load.

 HTTP/1.1: Header Field Definitions
Cache directives are unidirectional in that the presence of a directive in a request does not imply that the same directive is to be given in the response.
Cache directives MUST be passed through by a proxy or gateway application, regardless of their significance to that application, since the directives might be applicable to all recipients along the request/response chain.
A stale cache entry may not normally be returned by a cache (either a proxy cache or a user agent cache) unless it is first validated with the origin server (or with an intermediate cache that has a fresh copy of the entity).

 What is cache? - A Word Definition From the Webopedia Computer Dictionary
A memory cache, sometimes called a cache store or RAM cache, is a portion of memory made of high-speed static RAM (SRAM) instead of the slower and cheaper dynamic RAM (DRAM) used for main memory.
Memory caching is effective because most programs access the same data or instructions over and over.
Disk caching can dramatically improve the performance of applications, because accessing a byte of data in RAM can be thousands of times faster than accessing a byte on a hard disk.

 Define cache - a definition from Whatis.com - see also: cached
A disk cache (either a reserved area of RAM or a special hard disk cache) where a copy of the most recently accessed data and adjacent (most likely to be accessed) data is stored for fast access.
L2 cache memory, which is on a separate chip from the microprocessor but faster to access than regular RAM.
Also see: buffer, which, like a cache, is a temporary place for data, but with the primary purpose of coordinating communication between programs or hardware rather than improving process speed.

 Proxy Caching
When W3C httpd is run as a proxy it can perform caching of the documents retrieved from remote hosts to make futher requests faster.

Note that the cache refresh happens only if and when the document is requested, so if you have a refresh interval of 2 hours it doesn't mean that all the files in cache are fetched every two hours.

 The Perl Cache homepage   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The Perl Cache modules are designed to assist a developer in persisting data for a specified period of time.
The simplest cache is the MemoryCache, which is suitable for applications that are serving multiple sequential requests, and wish to avoid making redundant expensive queries, such as an Apache/mod_perl application talking to a database.
If you wish to share that data between processes, then perhaps the SharedMemoryCache is appropriate, although its behavior is tightly bound to the underlying IPC mechanism, which varies from system to system, and is unsuitable for large objects or large numbers of objects.

To cache something is to save the result of an expensive calculation so that you don't have to perform the calculation next time.
Upstream caching is a nice efficiency boost, but there's a danger to it: Many Web pages' contents differ based on authentication and a host of other variables, and cache systems that blindly save pages based purely on URLs could expose incorrect or sensitive data to subsequent visitors to those pages.
Another problem with caching is the privacy of data and the question of where data should be stored in a cascade of caches.

A Web browser cache stores the pages, graphics, sounds, and URLs of online places you visit on your hard drive; that way, when you go back to the page, everything doesn't have to be downloaded all over again.
Of course, disk access is slower than RAM access, so there's also disk caching, which stores information you might need from your hard disk in faster RAM.
