A tiny LRU cache implementation and decorator

Project description

repoze.lru

repoze.lru is a LRU (least recently used) cache implementation. Keys and values that are not used frequently will be evicted from the cache faster than keys and values that are used frequently. It works under Python 2.5, Python 2.6, Python 2.7, and Python 3.2.

Please see docs/index.rst for detailed documentation.
