Crypt::OpenPGP::BufferUser Contributed Perl DocumentaCrypt::OpenPGP::Buffer(3)

NAME
       Crypt::OpenPGP::Buffer -	Binary in/out buffer

SYNOPSIS
	   use Crypt::OpenPGP::Buffer;

	   my $n = Math::BigInt->new( 1	);

	   my $buf = Crypt::OpenPGP::Buffer->new;
	   $buf->put_big_int($n);

	   my $m = $buf->get_big_int;

DESCRIPTION
       Crypt::OpenPGP::Buffer subclasses the Data::Buffer class	to provide
       binary in/out buffer capabilities for Crypt::OpenPGP. In	addition to
       the standard Data::Buffer methods, this class adds methods to get and
       put multiple-precision integers (Math::BigInt objects).

       A PGP multiple precision	integer	is stored in two pieces: a two-octet
       scalar representing the length of the integer in	bits, followed by a
       string of octets	that is	a serialized representation of the integer.

USAGE
       As Crypt::OpenPGP::Buffer subclasses Data::Buffer there is no need to
       reproduce the entire documentation of the latter	module.	Thus this
       usage section will include only the methods added by
       Crypt::OpenPGP::Buffer.

   $buf->get_big_int
       Grabs a multiple-precision integer from the buffer $buf (starting after
       the current offset position in the buffer) and returns that integer.

       get_mp_int() is an alias	for this method, for backwards compatibility
       reasons.

   $buf->put_big_int($n)
       Serializes a multiple-precision integer into the	buffer in the above
       form (two-octet bitsize,	string of octets).

       put_mp_int() is an alias	for this method, for backwards compatibility
       reasons.
