Actually, my cache was empty when I started just after
cache directory /home/terry/.ccache
cache hit (direct) 0
cache hit (preprocessed) 0
cache miss 0
files in cache 0
cache size 0 Kbytes
max cache size 1.0 Gbytes
Then I increased the maximum size.

This is from last year. I suspect the numbers result from
two builds, the first giving almost all misses and second
giving almost all hits.
I dunno about direct hits. Direct hits may be a feature
newer than the ccache I was running then.

No, I think ccache did that all on its own. OTOH, the man
page says there is no default value for --max-files. The
output from `script` does not contain the string
