       Crypt::PasswdMD5 - Provides interoperable MD5-based crypt() functions

	   use Crypt::PasswdMD5;

	   $cryptedpassword = unix_md5_crypt($password, $salt);
	   $apachepassword = apache_md5_crypt($password, $salt);

       the "unix_md5_crypt()" provides a crypt()-compatible interface to the rather new MD5-based
       crypt() function found in modern operating systems.  It's based on the implementation
       found on FreeBSD 2.2.[56]-RELEASE and contains the following license in it:

	"THE BEER-WARE LICENSE" (Revision 42):
	<phk@login.dknet.dk> wrote this file.  As long as you retain this notice you
	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 <bryan@eai.com>.  As suggested by William A. Rowe, Jr.
       <wrowe@lnd.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 <jpeacock@cpan.org>.

       None by default.
