Digest::MD2(3) Perl interface to the MD2 Algorithm


# Functional style
use Digest::MD2 qw(md2 md2_hex md2_base64);
$digest = md2($data);
$digest = md2_hex($data);
$digest = md2_base64($data);
# OO style
use Digest::MD2;
$ctx = Digest::MD2->new;
$digest = $ctx->digest;
$digest = $ctx->hexdigest;
$digest = $ctx->b64digest;


The "Digest::MD2" module allows you to use the RSA Data Security Inc. MD2 Message Digest algorithm from within Perl programs. The algorithm takes as input a message of arbitrary length and produces as output a 128-bit ``fingerprint'' or ``message digest'' of the input.

The "Digest::MD2" programming interface is identical to the interface of "Digest::MD5".
