Digest::BLAKE - Perl interface to the BLAKE digest algorithm
# Functional interface use Digest::BLAKE qw(blake_256 blake_256_hex blake_256_base64); $digest = blake_256($data); $digest = blake_256_hex($data); $digest = blake_256_base64($data); # Object-oriented interface use Digest::BLAKE; $ctx = Digest::BLAKE->new(256); $ctx->add($data); $ctx->addfile(*FILE); $digest = $ctx->digest; $digest = $ctx->hexdigest; $digest = $ctx->b64digest;
Digest::BLAKE module provides an interface to the BLAKE message digest algorithm. BLAKE is a candidate in the NIST SHA-3 competition.
This interface follows the conventions set forth by the
The following functions are provided by the
Digest::BLAKE module. None of these functions are exported by default.
Logically joins the arguments into a single string, and returns its BLAKE digest encoded as a binary string.
Logically joins the arguments into a single string, and returns its BLAKE digest encoded as a hexadecimal string.
Logically joins the arguments into a single string, and returns its BLAKE digest encoded as a Base64 string, without any trailing padding.
The object-oriented interface to
Digest::BLAKE is identical to that described by
Digest, except for the following:
$blake = Digest::BLAKE->new(256)
The constructor requires the algorithm to be specified. It must be one of: 224, 256, 384, 512.
Returns the algorithm used by the object.
