What are the available options that you can pass in the frontendOptions array for Phalcon\Cache\Frontend\Data?

That's the title of the original question I had, but instead a more general question arise:

How can I find this sort of information without having to look at the .c source code?

I couldn't find any way of getting that information without looking here: https://github.com/phalcon/cphalcon/blob/1.3.0/ext/cache/frontend/data.c

and if I understand correctly the code, the only options available is the lifetime option.

I think that that kind of information should be easily available in the official documentation or api documentats without having to go to the source code, and maybe I missed it somewhere.

So the questions are:

1) Did I? Is the information somewhere I couldn't find apart from the .c code?

2) Is lifetime the only option available?

  1. A lot of the phalcon C code has been rewritten in the Zephir language for phalcon 2. As far as I know phalcon 1 and 2 are still pretty similar. So for general reference I'd say check out the phalcon 2.0.0 branch. In your case: https://github.com/phalcon/cphalcon/blob/2.0.0/phalcon/cache/frontend/data.zep

  2. Looking at the zep file it seems that lifetime is the only available option.
