I've never used caching before, and am considering adding it
to one of my apps. Basically, this is a database-backed app
where the underlying data changes very rarely. There's no
login. The only dynamic thing that happens is an occasional

Is my best practice going to be just using C::P::PageCache,
setting some long expiry time, and setting auto_cache to
'^(search)', and that's it? (All search results will have a
"search" in the URL, but nothing else will.) There are no
other places where I would need to control the cached-ness, or
the timing, in a more granular way.

If so, which cache plugin do people like, for a FreeBSD
server?  Memcached? 

And if not, what's the way to handle this?
