=head1 NAME

Digest::base - Digest base class

=head1 SYNOPSIS

  package Digest::Foo;
  use base 'Digest::base';

=head1 DESCRIPTION

The C<Digest::base> class provide implementations of the methods
C<addfile> and C<add_bits> in terms of C<add>, and of the methods
C<hexdigest> and C<b64digest> in terms of C<digest>.

Digest implementations might want to inherit from this class to get
this implementations of the alternative I<add> and I<digest> methods.
A minimal subclass needs to implement the following methods by itself:

    new
    clone
    add
    digest

The arguments and expected behaviour of these methods are described in
L<Digest>.
