NAME

Authen::SASL::SASLprep - A Stringprep Profile for User Names and Passwords (RFC 4013)

SYNOPSIS

  use Authen::SASL::SASLprep;
  $output_query = saslprep $input;
  $output_stored = saslprep $stored;

DESCRIPTION

This module implements the SASLprep specification, which describes how to prepare Unicode strings representing user names and passwords for comparison. SASLprep is a profile of the stringprep algorithm.

FUNCTIONS

This module implements a single function, saslprep, which is exported by default.

saslprep($input, [$stored]

Processes $input according to the SASLprep specification and returns the result.

If $input contains characters not allowed for SASLprep, it throws an exception (so use eval if necessary).

If the boolean parameter $stored is true, an exception is also thrown when characters are not allowed for stored strings (i.e., when characters are unassigned in Unicode 3.2). The default is to prepare query strings, in which unassigned characters are allowed.
