Module icontheme.cache

This module provides class for loading and validating icon theme caches.

Icon theme cache may be stored in icon-theme.cache files located in icon theme directory along with index.theme file. These files are usually generated by gtk-update-icon-cache. Icon theme cache can be used for faster and cheeper lookup of icons since it contains information about which icons exist in which sub directories.
