I did a yum search memcached
on an Amazon EC2 instance running Amazon Linux (derived from RHEL?) and got a lot of results. I'm wondering what the differences between some of these packages might be? Here are some of the results:
memcached-devel.x86_64 : Files needed for development using memcached protocol
perl-Cache-Memcached.noarch : Perl client for memcached
php-pecl-memcached.x86_64 : Extension to work with the Memcached caching daemon
php54-pecl-memcached.x86_64 : Extension to work with the Memcached caching daemon
python-memcached.noarch : A Python memcached client library
memcached.x86_64 : High Performance, Distributed Memory Object Cache
php-ZendFramework-Cache-Backend-Libmemcached.noarch : Zend Framework libmemcache cache backend
php-ZendFramework-Cache-Backend-Memcached.noarch : Zend Framework memcache cache backend
php-pecl-memcache.x86_64 : Extension to work with the Memcached caching daemon
php54-pecl-memcache.x86_64 : Extension to work with the Memcached caching daemon
In particular, what is the difference between php54-pecl-memcached.x86_64
Also, what might be the difference between those two and these two:
Is this just sloppy package management?
Is there some command I might use to get more information? Is there some index online that might provide more detail?
