Please note: commited append command support from Filipe is NOT atomic
since it obtains previous item data in process_update_command() - i.e.
before reading from network completes. Thus in theory one may change old
data before new data will be linked in complete_nread(). It's not
thread-safe as far as I see, too.
Several days ago I've developed more correct append/prepend patch (with
the same syntax for append), it's available here:
It's truly atomic and should be thread-safe since all actual work done in
do_store_item() (which is locked when memcached used with treads). It's a
bit more resource consuming though - since we can't be sure that nobody
changes old data before we finish reading - we have to do memcpy() for new
*and* old data.
Coresponding perl api changes (trivial - just new append/prepend commands
mapped to generic _set()) available here:
