Authen::Htpasswd::Util - performs encryption of supported .htpasswd formats



Encrypts a cleartext $password given the specified $hash (valid values are "md5", "sha1", "crypt", or "plain"). For "crypt" and "md5" it is sometimes necessary to pass the old encrypted password as $hashed_password to be sure that the new one uses the correct salt. Exported by default.


    my @hashes = Authen::Htpasswd::Util::supported_hashes();
Returns an array of hash types available. "crypt" and "plain" are always available. "sha1" is checked by attempting to load it via Digest. "md5" requires Crypt::PasswdMD5.
