Perl6 Digest::MD5 module

An interface-compatible port of Perl 5 Digest::MD5 to Perl 6.

Cosimo Streppone (cosimo@cpan.org)

Synopsis

    use Digest::MD5;
    say Digest::MD5.new.md5_hex("My awesome data to hash");

Methods

new

    my $d = Digest::MD5.new;

Returns a new Digest::MD5 object.

md5_hex

    my $md5_hash = $d.md5_hex('data');

    my @data = "one", "two", "and more";
    my $md5_hash = $d.md5_hex( @data );

    # returns string '009ef1defa9fa27032f9f52cdeda8698'

Takes either a string or an array as the argument and returns MD5 hash as a hex string.

md5_buf

    my $md5_buf = $d.md5_buf('data');

    # returns Buf:0x<8d 77 7f 38 5d 3d fe c8 81 5d 20 f7 49 60 26 dc>

Takes same arguments as md5_hex, except returns a Buf instead of a string.

Subroutines

Digest::MD5::md5

my $data = $str.encode('ascii');
my $md5_buf = Digest::MD5::md5($data);

    # returns Buf:0x<8d 77 7f 38 5d 3d fe c8 81 5d 20 f7 49 60 26 dc>
