NAME

CGI::Application::Plugin::Authentication::Driver::Filter::md5 - MD5 filter

VERSION

This document describes CGI::Application::Plugin::Authentication::Driver::Filter::md5 version 0.20

METHODS

filter ( (hex base64 binary), $string )

This will generate an MD5 hash of the string in the requested format. By default, hex encoding is used.
 my $filtered = $class->filter('base64', 'foobar'); # OFj2IjCsPJFfMAxmQxLGPw
 -or-
 my $filtered = $class->filter(undef, 'foobar'); # 3858f62230ac3c915f300c664312c63f

check ( (hex base64 binary), $string, $md5 )

This will generate an MD5 hash of the string, and compare it against the provided MD5 string. If no encoding type is specified, the length of the MD5 string will be tested to see what format it is in.
 if ($class->check(undef, 'foobar', '3858f62230ac3c915f300c664312c63f')) {
     # they match
 }
