Tiger(3)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation	      Tiger(3)

NAME
       Digest::Tiger - a module	that implements	the tiger hash

SYNOPSIS
	use Digest::Tiger;

	# hash() returns a 192 bit hash
	my $hash = Digest::Tiger::hash('Tiger')

	# hexhash() returns a hex representation of the	192 bits...
	# $hexhash should be 'DD00230799F5009FEC6DEBC838BB6A27DF2B9D6F110C7937'
	my $hexhash = Digest::Tiger::hexhash('Tiger')

DESCRIPTION
       A perl module that implements the tiger hash, which is believed to be
       secure and runs quickly on 64-bit processors.

AUTHOR
       Perl interface by Clinton Wong, reference C code	used by	Digest::Tiger
       supplied	by Ross	Anderson and Eli Biham.

       This module is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it
       under the same terms as Perl itself.

NOTE
       As of version 0.02, hexhash() returns a hex digest starting with	the
       least significant byte first.  For example:

	Hash of	"Tiger":
	 0	       7  8	       15 16		23
	DD00230799F5009F EC6DEBC838BB6A27 DF2B9D6F110C7937

	Instead	of:
	 7	       0 15		8 23		16
	9F00F599072300DD 276ABB38C8EB6DEC 37790C116F9D2BDF

       The print order issue was brought up by Gordon Mohr; Eli	Biham
       clarifies with: "The testtiger.c	was intended to	allow easy testing of
       the code, rather	than to	define any particular print order.  ...using a
       standard	printing method, like the one for MD5 or SHA-1,	the DD should
       probably	should be printed first	[for the example above]".
