NAME ^

Digest::ECHO - Perl interface to the ECHO digest algorithm

SYNOPSIS ^

    # Functional interface
    use Digest::ECHO qw(echo_256 echo_256_hex echo_256_base64);

    $digest = echo_256($data);
    $digest = echo_256_hex($data);
    $digest = echo_256_base64($data);

    # Object-oriented interface
    use Digest::ECHO;

    $ctx = Digest::ECHO->new(256);

    $ctx->add($data);
    $ctx->addfile(*FILE);

    $digest = $ctx->digest;
    $digest = $ctx->hexdigest;
    $digest = $ctx->b64digest;

DESCRIPTION ^

The Digest::ECHO module provides an interface to the ECHO message digest algorithm. ECHO is a candidate in the NIST SHA-3 competition.

This interface follows the conventions set forth by the Digest module.

FUNCTIONS ^

The following functions are provided by the Digest::ECHO module. None of these functions are exported by default.

echo_224($data, ...)

echo_256($data, ...)

echo_384($data, ...)

echo_512($data, ...)

Logically joins the arguments into a single string, and returns its ECHO digest encoded as a binary string.

echo_224_hex($data, ...)

echo_256_hex($data, ...)

echo_384_hex($data, ...)

echo_512_hex($data, ...)

Logically joins the arguments into a single string, and returns its ECHO digest encoded as a hexadecimal string.

echo_224_base64($data, ...)

echo_256_base64($data, ...)

echo_384_base64($data, ...)

echo_512_base64($data, ...)

Logically joins the arguments into a single string, and returns its ECHO digest encoded as a Base64 string, without any trailing padding.

METHODS ^

The object-oriented interface to Digest::ECHO is identical to that described by Digest, except for the following:

new

    $echo = Digest::ECHO->new(256)

The constructor requires the algorithm to be specified. It must be one of: 224, 256, 384, 512.

algorithm

hashsize

Returns the algorithm used by the object.
