NAME

CGI::Application::Plugin::Authentication::Driver::Filter::crypt - crypt Filter

VERSION

This document describes CGI::Application::Plugin::Authentication::Driver::Filter::crypt version 0.20

METHODS

filter ( undef, $string [, salt ] )

This will generate a crypted string. The first parameter is always ignored, since there is only one way to use the crypt function. You can pass in an extra parameter to act as the salt.
 my $filtered = $class->filter(undef, 'foobar'); # mQvbWI43eDCAk
 -or-
 my $filtered = $class->filter(undef, 'foobar', 'AA'); # AAZk9Aj5/Ue0E

check ( undef, $string, $crypted )

This will crypt the string, and compare it against the provided crypted string. The first parameter is always ignored, since there is only one way to use the crypt function.
 if ($class->check(undef, 'foobar', 'mQvbWI43eDCAk')) {
     # they match
 }
