What I'm looking for now is an explanation of all the stats field when

No, there's no such documentation. (Other than the source code. ;-)) But it
would be good to have.
But I'm looking for explanations of the differences between things

"cache hit (direct)": Cache hit when using the direct mode
"cache hit (preprocessed)": Cache hit when using the preprocessor mode
"no input file": ccache didn't detect any input source code file. For
example, this happens when you run "ccache gcc --version".
