    Examples of use

    // create an object
    $obCache = new CPHPCache; 
    // caching time - 30 minutes
    $life_time = 30*60; 
    // form the cache ID according to all parameters 
    // which may affect the resulting HTML
    $cache_id = $ELEMENT_ID.$SECTION_ID.$USER->GetUserGroupString(); 
    // if the cache exists and is not expired, then
    if($obCache->InitCache($life_time, $cache_id, "/")) :
        // obtain cached variables
        $vars = $obCache->GetVars();
        $SECTION_TITLE = $vars["SECTION_TITLE"];
    else :
        // otherwise call the database
        $arSection = GetIBlockSection($SECTION_ID);
        $SECTION_TITLE = $arSection["NAME"];
    // add a menu item to the navigation chain
    // start buffered output
        // obtain the information block element parameters from the database
        if($arIBlockElement = GetIBlockElement($ELEMENT_ID, $IBLOCK_TYPE)):
            echo "<pre>"; print_r($arIBlockElement); echo "</pre>";
        // write the preliminary buffered output to the cache file
        // together with an additional variable
            "SECTION_TITLE"    => $SECTION_TITLE
