NAME Crypt::Memfrob - memfrob implementation in pure Perl SYNOPSIS use Crypt::Memfrob 'memfrob'; my $frobed = memfrob($str); DESCRIPTION This package provides one function 'memfrob.' This is equivalent to the memfrob function included in glibc. With this library, you can generate glibc-compatible frobnicated (encrypted) strings, and defrobnicate glibc-generated strings, in Perl. FUNCTIONS memfrob This function frobnicates given string and returns the result. FROBNICATION This library is based on GNU libc 2.2.4. From memfrob(3): The memfrob() function encrypts the first n bytes of the memory areas by exclusive-ORing each character with the number 42. The effect can be reversed by using memfrob() on the encrypted memory area. Note that this function is not a proper encryption routine as the XOR constant is fixed, and is only suitable for hiding strings. SEE ALSO memfrob(3).
