Crypt::PasswdMD5 - Provides interoperable MD5-based crypt() functions
$cryptedpassword = unix_md5_crypt($password, $salt);
$apachepassword = apache_md5_crypt($password, $salt);
the "unix_md5_crypt()" provides a crypt()
to the rather new MD5-based crypt()
function found in modern operating
systems. It's based on the implementation found on FreeBSD 2.2.-RELEASE
and contains the following license in it:
"THE BEER-WARE LICENSE" (Revision 42):

can do whatever you want with this stuff. If we meet some day, and you think
this stuff is worth it, you can buy me a beer in return. Poul-Henning Kamp
"apache_md5_crypt()" provides a function compatible with Apache's
".htpasswd" files. This was contributed by Bryan Hart
<firstname.lastname@example.org>. As suggested by William A. Rowe, Jr.
<email@example.com>, it is exported by default.
For both functions, if a salt value is not supplied, a random salt will be
generated. Contributed by John Peacock <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
None by default.
