=head1 NAME

Template::Plugin::String::CRC32 - L<Template::Toolkit> plugin-wrapper of L<String::CRC32>


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


I<Template::Plugin::String::CRC32> is wrapper of L<String::CRC32> module for L<Template::Toolkit>.
It provides access to CRC32 algorithm via the C<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:

=over 4

=item C<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

    FILTER crc32; content; END;
    content FILTER crc32;

Code and documentation was inspired by L<Template::Plugin::Digest::MD5> module.
