Can anybody tell me how to use CFCACHE to cache my SQL query ?

I have a home page which will do a CFQUERY on a news update table but I would like to cache it so that everytime someone load the home page, it will not always doing the CFQUERY but getting the data from the cache file, if there is. I can't find it explain very well in ColdFusion help file.

Is there any sample scripts out there ?

CFCACHE is meant for content not queries.  If you have a dynamic page but can be cached when it has the URL params or something similar that is when you should use CFCACHE.

For caching queries use this:
<CFQUERY DATASOURCE="yourdsn" NAME="MyCachedQuery" CACHEDWITHIN="#CreateTimeSpan(0, 1, 0, 0)#">
   SELECT *
     FROM SomeTable;
</CFQUERY>

This caches the query for an hour.  You can change it as you need it.. the parameters are dd, hh, mm, ss for CreateTimeSpan.
