NAME

Crypt::Digest::SHA512 - Hash function SHA-512 [size: 512 bits]

SYNOPSIS

   ### Functional interface:
   use Crypt::Digest::SHA512 qw( sha512 sha512_hex sha512_b64 sha512_b64u
                                sha512_file sha512_file_hex sha512_file_b64 sha512_file_b64u );

   # calculate digest from string/buffer
   $sha512_raw  = sha512('data string');
   $sha512_hex  = sha512_hex('data string');
   $sha512_b64  = sha512_b64('data string');
   $sha512_b64u = sha512_b64u('data string');
   # calculate digest from file
   $sha512_raw  = sha512_file('filename.dat');
   $sha512_hex  = sha512_file_hex('filename.dat');
   $sha512_b64  = sha512_file_b64('filename.dat');
   $sha512_b64u = sha512_file_b64u('filename.dat');
   # calculate digest from filehandle
   $sha512_raw  = sha512_file(*FILEHANDLE);
   $sha512_hex  = sha512_file_hex(*FILEHANDLE);
   $sha512_b64  = sha512_file_b64(*FILEHANDLE);
   $sha512_b64u = sha512_file_b64u(*FILEHANDLE);

   ### OO interface:
   use Crypt::Digest::SHA512;

   $d = Crypt::Digest::SHA512->new;
   $d->add('any data');
   $d->addfile('filename.dat');
   $d->addfile(*FILEHANDLE);
   $result_raw  = $d->digest;     # raw bytes
   $result_hex  = $d->hexdigest;  # hexadecimal form
   $result_b64  = $d->b64digest;  # Base64 form
   $result_b64u = $d->b64udigest; # Base64 URL Safe form

DESCRIPTION

Provides an interface to the SHA512 digest algorithm.

EXPORT

Nothing is exported by default.

You can export selected functions:

  use Crypt::Digest::SHA512 qw(sha512 sha512_hex sha512_b64 sha512_b64u
                                      sha512_file sha512_file_hex sha512_file_b64 sha512_file_b64u);

Or all of them at once:

  use Crypt::Digest::SHA512 ':all';

FUNCTIONS

sha512

Logically joins all arguments into a single string, and returns its SHA512 digest encoded as a binary string.

 $sha512_raw = sha512('data string');
 #or
 $sha512_raw = sha512('any data', 'more data', 'even more data');

sha512_hex

Logically joins all arguments into a single string, and returns its SHA512 digest encoded as a hexadecimal string.

 $sha512_hex = sha512_hex('data string');
 #or
 $sha512_hex = sha512_hex('any data', 'more data', 'even more data');

sha512_b64

Logically joins all arguments into a single string, and returns its SHA512 digest encoded as a Base64 string, with trailing '=' padding.

 $sha512_b64 = sha512_b64('data string');
 #or
 $sha512_b64 = sha512_b64('any data', 'more data', 'even more data');

sha512_b64u

Logically joins all arguments into a single string, and returns its SHA512 digest encoded as a Base64 URL Safe string (see RFC 4648 section 5).

 $sha512_b64url = sha512_b64u('data string');
 #or
 $sha512_b64url = sha512_b64u('any data', 'more data', 'even more data');

sha512_file

Reads file (defined by filename or filehandle) content, and returns its SHA512 digest encoded as a binary string.

 $sha512_raw = sha512_file('filename.dat');
 #or
 $sha512_raw = sha512_file(*FILEHANDLE);

sha512_file_hex

Reads file (defined by filename or filehandle) content, and returns its SHA512 digest encoded as a hexadecimal string.

 $sha512_hex = sha512_file_hex('filename.dat');
 #or
 $sha512_hex = sha512_file_hex(*FILEHANDLE);

BEWARE: You have to make sure that the filehandle is in binary mode before you pass it as argument to the addfile() method.

sha512_file_b64

Reads file (defined by filename or filehandle) content, and returns its SHA512 digest encoded as a Base64 string, with trailing '=' padding.

 $sha512_b64 = sha512_file_b64('filename.dat');
 #or
 $sha512_b64 = sha512_file_b64(*FILEHANDLE);

sha512_file_b64u

Reads file (defined by filename or filehandle) content, and returns its SHA512 digest encoded as a Base64 URL Safe string (see RFC 4648 section 5).

 $sha512_b64url = sha512_file_b64u('filename.dat');
 #or
 $sha512_b64url = sha512_file_b64u(*FILEHANDLE);

addfile

 $d->addfile('filename.dat');
 #or
 $d->addfile(*FILEHANDLE);

add_bits

 $d->add_bits($bit_string);   # e.g. $d->add_bits("111100001010");
 #or
 $d->add_bits($data, $nbits); # e.g. $d->add_bits("\xF0\xA0", 16);

hashsize

 $d->hashsize;
 #or
 Crypt::Digest::SHA512->hashsize();
