This class can store array values in PHP cache file scripts.

It can take a array value and an optional file name and store the array in a PHP cache script.

The generated script can load the original array value using a require statement.

Stupid simple class capable of creating php files that return arrays.

This is a very basic class that just saves arrays in a file that return said array. I created this class primarily because I'm exceedingly lazy, and I wanted to go through as minimum of an effort as possible to save and retrieve config values.

Ultimately, I think that if you need a way to store data that will not be written very often, that's lightning fast to access, who's data can be version controlled, you don't want the extra overhead of having a db connection, and/or you don't want to json_decode or unserialize your data to stick it into an array, then this class may be for you.
