Zend_Locale and its subclasses can be speeded up by the usage of
Zend_Cache. Use the static method
Zend_Locale::setCache($cache) if you are using
Zend_Locale_Format can be
speeded up the using the option cache within
Zend_Locale_Format::setOptions(array('cache' => $adapter));.
If you are using both classes you should only set the cache for
Zend_Locale, otherwise the last set cache will overwrite the
previous set cache. For convenience there are also the static methods
When no cache is set, then
Zend_Locale will automatically set a
cache itself. Sometimes it is wished to prevent that a cache is set, even if this
degrades performance. In this case the static
disableCache(true) method should be used. It does not only
disable the actual set cache, without erasing it, but also prevents that a cache is
automatically generated when no cache is set.
