       APR::Util - Perl	API for	Various	APR Utilities

	 use APR::Util ();

	 $ok = password_validate($passwd, $hash);

       Various APR utilities that don't	fit into any other group.

       "APR::Util" provides the	following functions and/or methods:

       Validate	an encrypted password hash against a plain text	password (with
       lots of restrictions and	peculiarities).

	 $ok = password_validate($passwd, $hash);

       arg1: $passwd ( string )
	   Plain text password string

       arg2: $hash ( string )
	   Encrypted or	encoded	hash. See below	for supported hash formats.

       ret: $ok	( boolean )
	   The password	either matches or not.

       since: 2.0.00

       The function handles the	output of the following	functions (it knows to
       tell md5	and sha1 from the others, since	they are have a	special
       pattern recognized by apr):

       o   md5

	   generated by	"apr_md5_encode()" (for	which at the moment we have no
	   perl	glue, ask if you need it).

       o   sha1

	   generated by	"apr_sha1_base64()" (for which at the moment we	have
	   no perl glue, ask if	you need it).

	   and it's available only since Apache	2.0.50

       o   crypt

	   On all but the following platforms: MSWin32,	beos and NetWare.
	   Therefore you probably don't	want to	use that feature, unless you
	   know	that your code will never end up running on those listed

	   Moreover on these three platforms if	that function sees that	the
	   hash	is not of md5 and sha1 formats,	it'll do a clear to clear text
	   matching, always returning success, no matter what the hashed value

       Warning:	double check that you understand what this function does and
       does not	before using it.

Unsupported API
       "APR::Socket" also provides auto-generated Perl interface for a few
       other methods which aren't tested at the	moment and therefore their API
       is a subject to change. These methods will be finalized later as	a need
       arises. If you want to rely on any of the following methods please
       contact the the mod_perl	development mailing list so we can help	each
       other take the steps necessary to shift the method to an	officially
       supported API.

       META: Autogenerated - needs to be reviewed/completed

       [We have	File::Spec and File::Basename for this purpose,	I can't	see
       why this	api is needed]

       return the final	element	of the pathname

	 $ret =	filepath_name_get($pathname);

       arg1: $pathname ( string	)
	   The path to get the final element of

       ret: $ret ( string )
	   the final element of	the path

	   For example:

	     "/foo/bar/gum"    => "gum"
	     "/foo/bar/gum/"   => ""
	     "gum"	       => "gum"
	     "bs\\path\\stuff" => "stuff"

       since: subject to change

       META: Autogenerated - needs to be reviewed/completed

       Display a prompt	and read in the	password from stdin.

	 $ret =	password_get($prompt, $pwbuf, $bufsize);

       arg1: $prompt ( string )
	   The prompt to display

       arg2: $pwbuf ( string )
	   Buffer to store the password

       arg3: $bufsize (number)
	   The length of the password buffer.

       ret: $ret (integer)
       since: subject to change
