NAME

Digest::MD2 - Perl interface to the MD2 Algorithm

SYNOPSIS

 # 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;

 $ctx->add($data);
 $ctx->addfile(*FILE);

 $digest = $ctx->digest;
 $digest = $ctx->hexdigest;
 $digest = $ctx->b64digest;

DESCRIPTION

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.
