Data::Printer::Filter:UsereContributed Perl DoData::Printer::Filter::Digest(3)

       Data::Printer::Filter::Digest - pretty-printing MD5, SHA	and friends

       In your program:

	 use Data::Printer filters => {
	   -external =>	[ 'Digest' ],

       or, in your ".dataprinter" file:

	   filters => {
	      -external	=> [ 'Digest' ],

       You can also setup color	and display details:

	 use Data::Printer
	     filters =>	{
		 -external => [	'Digest' ],
	     color   =>	{
		 digest	=> 'bright_green',
	     digest => {
		 show_class_name => 0,	# default.
		 show_reset	 => 1,	# default.

       This is a filter	plugin for Data::Printer. It filters through several
       digest classes and displays their current value in hexadecimal format
       as a string.

   Extra Options
       Aside from the display color, there are a few other options to be
       customized via the "digest" option key:


       Set this	to true	to display the class name right	next to	the
       hexadecimal digest. Default is 0	(false).


       If set to true (the default), the filter	will add a "[reset]" tag after
       dumping an empty	digest object. See the rationale below.

   Note	on dumping Digest::* objects
       The digest operation is effectively a destructive, read-once operation.
       Once it has been	performed, most	Digest::* objects are automatically
       reset and can be	used to	calculate another digest value.

       This behaviour -	or, rather, forgetting about this behaviour - is a
       common source of	issues when working with Digests.

       This Data::Printer filter will not destroy your object. Instead,	we
       work on a cloned	version	to display the hexdigest, leaving your
       original	object untouched.

       As another debugging convenience	for developers,	since the empty	object
       will produce a digest even after	being used, this filter	adds by
       default a "[reset]" tag to indicate that	the object is empty, in	a
       'reset' state - i.e. its	hexdigest is the same as the hexdigest of a
       new, empty object of that same class.
