Memcached::append

(PECL memcached >= 0.1.0)

Memcached::appendAppend data to an existing item

Description

public Memcached::append(string $key, string $value): ?bool

Memcached::append() appends the given value string to the value of an existing item. The reason that value is forced to be a string is that appending mixed types is not well-defined.

Note:

If the Memcached::OPT_COMPRESSION is enabled, the operation will fail and a warning will be issued, because appending compressed data to a value that is potentially already compressed is not possible.

Parameters

key

The key under which to store the value.

value

The string to append.

Return Values

Returns true on success or false on failure. Returns null when compression is on.

Errors/Exceptions

Returns null and raises an E_WARNING when compression is enabled.

Examples

Example #1 Memcached::append() example

<?php
$m
= new Memcached();
$m->addServer('localhost', 11211);
$m->setOption(Memcached::OPT_COMPRESSION, false);

$m->set('foo', 'abc');
$m->append('foo', 'def');
var_dump($m->get('foo'));
?>

The above example will output:

string(6) "abcdef"

This method emits this php warning if OPT_COMPRESSION is not explicitly set to false (tested with libmemcached 1.0.18 & pecl-memcached 2.1.0):

PHP Warning: Memcached::append(): cannot append/prepend with compression turned on
