The simple way is to create your own error handler and do the following:


if (ectxt->cont == 'a' || ectxt->cont == 'n'){ 

   ectxt->cont = 'y'; 



Hope that helps.

When libmemcache looses connection to a cache server (e.g., memcached

libmemcache to make it try to re-connect? Or, at least, not to exit?
