Hello Alexander,

I've one simple question, how is performance affected when opening a
small text file (a small database).

I know if the file is small linux itself will cache into memory the
file, but I'm worried about how it will affect each url request to
open the file, even from memory reading again the whole file, then
querying, then closing the handler, etc. All in vain because this file
won't change more than once per hour.

My question is:
There is any way to store information in memory to use between
different requests within perl?

Thank you,
