[ANN] Digest::SHA 5.28 (w/ shasum)

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

The Digest::SHA distribution now supports computation of digests from
the command line.  The bundled `shasum' script mimics the behavior of
`md5sum', and can serve as a drop-in replacement for the latter when the

`shasum' implements all option switches of `md5sum', and includes an
additional one (-a or --algorithm) to indicate which SHA transform to
use.  The package supports all algorithms specified in FIPS 180-2 (viz.
