Digest::base - Digest base class
package Digest::Foo; use base Digest::base;
The Digest::base class provide implementations of the methods addfile and add_bits in terms of add, and of the methods hexdigest and b64digest in terms of digest.
Digest implementations might want to inherit from this class to get this implementations of the alternative add and digest methods. A minimal subclass needs to implement the following methods by itself:
new clone add digest
The arguments and expected behaviour of these methods are described in Digest.
