=head1 NAME

Digest::file - Calculate digests of files

=head1 SYNOPSIS

  # Poor mans "md5sum" command
  use Digest::file qw(digest_file_hex);
  for (@ARGV) {
      print digest_file_hex($_, "MD5"), "  $_\n";
  }

=head1 DESCRIPTION

This module provide 3 convenience functions to calculate the digest
of files.  The following functions are provided:

=over

=item digest_file( $file, $algorithm, [$arg,...] )

This function will calculate and return the binary digest of the bytes
of the given file.  The function will croak if it fails to open or
read the file.

The $algorithm is a string like "MD2", "MD5", "SHA-1", "SHA-512".
Additional arguments are passed to the constructor for the
implementation of the given algorithm.

=item digest_file_hex( $file, $algorithm, [$arg,...] )

Same as digest_file(), but return the digest in hex form.

=item digest_file_base64( $file, $algorithm, [$arg,...] )

Same as digest_file(), but return the digest as a base64 encoded
string.
