Subpackage Descriptions
single This library provides message digest functions found on BSD systems either on their libc (NetBSD, OpenBSD) or libmd (FreeBSD, DragonflyBSD, Mac OS X, Solaris) libraries and lacking on others like GNU systems. The intention here is to have a library with extremely permissive licenses (see below), that can be used by any project; that has a very small scope and as such can be part of the base system on most distributions; and that has a compatible API with the implementations on other systems and those that other projects are embedding, so that they can switch to use the system library instead of duplicating the same code all over the place. The currently provided message digest algorithms are: MD2 MD4 MD5 RIPEMD-160 SHA-1 SHA-2 (SHA-256, SHA-384 and SHA-512)
