CharacterInfoStorage stores items in your inventory, bags and bank for all your characters so you can access it from all your charactes.

The focus is on low memory usage. Only the 3 first numbers in the ItemString are stored (itemId:enchantId:suffixId).

Also see CharacterInfo for a graphic interface to view the information stored and FuBar_CharacterInfoFu for a Fubar plugin with configuration. Also see the brank new MailInfo for mail tracking.

I wrote this addon because I got upset about how CharactersViewer has evolved. The latest version of CharactersViewer that uses rpgoCharacterProfiler is using massive amounts of memory (close to 10MB). CharacterInfoStorage uses around 130KB with 8 characters plus about 600KB for the graphic interface (that is load on demand). Update: Since 2.0 more information needs to be stored for every item making the addon take more memory, but it's still far from the memory hog that CharactersViewer where.
