This Lua library makes it convenient to process data using various algorithms, and to handle arbitrarily large amounts of input and output data with them.

Currently the algorithms supported are: MD5 and SHA-1 message digests, Adler32 checksumming, Base64 encoding and decoding, quoted-printable encoding and decoding, encoding binary data as hexadecimal, and percent/URI encoding and decoding.

When you unpack the source code everything should already be ready for compilation. Doing make install as root will compile everything, and install the compiled library and some man pages describing it.

See lua-datafilter(3) for an overview of how to use the library. The same documentation is available on the website, where you can also get the latest packages:
