Description Andreas Thienemann 2007-03-16 09:50:28 EDT
Spec URL:
This module ( is just a thin wrapper around the Digest::MD5
module.  It is provided so that legacy code that rely on the old
interface continue to work with the speed benefit of the new module.
Comment 1 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-03-21 00:26:44 EDT
Source URL not working
Change it to
Comment 2 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-03-21 00:31:25 EDT
This module is deprecated then why you want to include it in package.
Instead fo on adding perl-Digest-MD5, I think its not yet in Fedora.
Comment 3 Andreas Thienemann 2007-03-22 05:54:44 EDT
Thanks for the correction of the URL.
perl(MD5) has been removed in favour of perl(Digest::MD5) as it is faster. This
module however is a wrapper for Digest::MD5 which provdes the perl(MD5) interface.
We do have quite some scripts in use which use perl(MD5) and thus do benefit
from this module.

Stuff like websieve, a web interface for the sieve mailfilter part of the cyrus
imap daemon is one of these scrips e.g.
