A basic cross-platform C++ client for the memcached server. The primary focus for this client is Windows applications but it may also be used on *nix systems. The existing C++ clients either don't support Windows, don't compile or require heavy prerequisites, hence this basic client. It supports the latest API for memcached v1.2.5 (append, prepend, noreply), attempts to minimize messages sent to the servers and implements a version of consistent hashing for servers. Released as open-source and free for use in all software under the MIT licence.
Full documentation of the interface is available in either online documentation or as a separate download.
The current version of MemCacheClient is 2.0 (last updated: 24 Jan 2012)
Full source code and a test program is included in the download. The homepage of the project is here, however the source repository is stored at google code.
