2========================
3
4Digest::SHA is a complete implementation of the NIST Secure Hash
5Standard. It gives Perl programmers a convenient way to calculate
6SHA-1, SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, and SHA-512 message digests.
7The module can handle all types of input, including partial-byte
8data.
9
10Digest::SHA is written in C for speed. If your platform lacks a
11C compiler, you can install the functionally-equivalent (but much
12slower) Digest::SHA::PurePerl module.
13
14The tests subdirectory (t/*.t) contains an extensive set of SHA
15vectors compiled from various sources.
