NAME ^

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

SYNOPSIS ^

    # Functional interface
    use Digest::Luffa qw(luffa_256 luffa_256_hex luffa_256_base64);

    $digest = luffa_256($data);
    $digest = luffa_256_hex($data);
    $digest = luffa_256_base64($data);

    # Object-oriented interface
    use Digest::Luffa;

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

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

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

DESCRIPTION ^

The Digest::Luffa module provides an interface to the Luffa message digest algorithm. Luffa 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::Luffa module. None of these functions are exported by default.

luffa_224($data, ...)

luffa_256($data, ...)

luffa_384($data, ...)

luffa_512($data, ...)

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

luffa_224_hex($data, ...)

luffa_256_hex($data, ...)

luffa_384_hex($data, ...)

luffa_512_hex($data, ...)

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

luffa_224_base64($data, ...)

luffa_256_base64($data, ...)

luffa_384_base64($data, ...)

luffa_512_base64($data, ...)

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

METHODS ^

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

new

    $luffa = Digest::Luffa->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.
