I'm scripting a light-weight, low volume signup registry for a running club.
Folks sign up to volunteer for events and the like. There will generally be a
handful of signup registries at any one time. A typical registry will only
contain 50 to 100 names. Each registry is only in existence for a month or so.
I really don't see the advantage of using a real DB [e.g., mySQL,] for this.
Don't need any special searching, etc.
Am thinking of using a simple serialized array file for each registry; or, using
Pear Cache_lite. Cache_lite has several nice functions I can take advantage of.
In spite of its name, it can be configured to be permanent.
I'd just go ahead and use Cache_lite; but, I'm always reluctant to use a Pear
package for fear it may not be updated for for future php releases, etc. I aways
aim to keep maintenance to a minimum.
Anyone had experience with Cache_Lite? Anyone have an opinion on the
alternatives or maybe another storage approach?
