There's the file docs/protocol.txt in the memcached distribution, that


  Data stored by memcached is identified with the help of a key. A key
  is a text string which should uniquely identify the data for clients
  that are interested in storing and retrieving it.  Currently the
  length limit of a key is set at 250 characters (of course, normally
  clients wouldn't need to use such long keys); the key must not include
  control characters or whitespace.
