NAME

Template::Plugin::String::CRC32 - Template::Toolkit plugin-wrapper of String::CRC32

SYNOPSIS

  [% USE String::CRC32 -%]
  [% 'test_string' | crc32 %]
  [% text = 'test_string'; text.crc32 %]

DESCRIPTION

Template::Plugin::String::CRC32 is wrapper of String::CRC32 module for Template::Toolkit. It provides access to CRC32 algorithm via the String::CRC32 module. It is used like a plugin but installs filter and vmethod into the current context.

When you invoke

  [% USE String::CRC32 %]

the following filter (and vmethod of the same name) is installed into the current context:

crc32

Calculate the CRC 32bit checksum of the input, and return it as 4-bytes integer.

As the filter is also available as vmethod the following are all equivalent:

    FILTER crc32; content; END;
    content FILTER crc32;
    content.crc32;
