wnpp: ITP: apc -- Alternative PHP Cache speeds up loading PHP scripts in web servers

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

 [Please CC me if you have any comments]

Description: Caches PHP scripts to get them loaded much faster
 Usually, when you use PHP scripts in a website, every time someone loads
 them they're loaded, parsed, compiled and then executed. The Alternative
 PHP Cache allows to save these scripts in an already-compiled form, so that
 much time is saved if they're called frequently.

It may be downloaded from http://apc.communityconnect.com/download.html

Its license is the following:

The APC Caching module for php/Zend is provided under the QPL and may be used 
and/or distributed as regulated b the terms below.
