Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

NAME
Digest::SHA1 - Perl interface to the SHA-1 Algorithm
SYNOPSIS
# Functional style use Digest::SHA1 qw(sha1 sha1_hex sha1_base64); $digest = sha1($data); $digest = sha1_hex($data); $digest = sha1_base64($data); # OO style use Digest::SHA1; $ctx = Digest::SHA1->new; $ctx->add($data); $ctx->addfile(*FILE); $digest = $ctx->digest; $digest = $ctx->hexdigest; $digest = $ctx->b64digest;
DESCRIPTION
The "Digest::SHA1" module allows you to use the NIST SHA-1 message digest algorithm from within Perl programs. The algorithm takes as input a message of arbitrary length and produces as output a 160-bit "fingerprint" or "message digest" of the input. The "Digest::SHA1" module provide a procedural interface for simple use, as well as an object oriented interface that can handle messages of arbitrary length and which can read files directly. A binary digest will be 20 bytes long. A hex digest will be 40 characters long. A base64 digest will be 27 characters long.
FUNCTIONS
The following functions can be exported from the "Digest::SHA1" module. No functions are exported by default. sha1($data,...) This function will concatenate all arguments, calculate the SHA-1 digest of this "message", and return it in binary form. sha1_hex($data,...) Same as sha1(), but will return the digest in hexadecimal form. sha1_base64($data,...) Same as sha1(), but will return the digest as a base64 encoded string.
METHODS
The "Digest::SHA1" module provide the standard "Digest" OO-interface. The constructor looks like this: $sha1 = Digest->new('SHA-1') $sha1 = Digest::SHA1->new The constructor returns a new "Digest::SHA1" object which encapsulate the state of the SHA-1 message-digest algorithm. You can add data to the object and finally ask for the digest using the methods described in Digest.
