NAME

       APR::Util - Perl API for Various APR Utilities

Synopsis

         use APR::Util ();

         $ok = password_validate($passwd, $hash);

Description

       Various APR utilities that don't fit into any other group.

API

       "APR::Util" provides the following functions and/or methods:

   "password_validate"
       Validate an encrypted password hash against a plain text password (with lots of
       restrictions and peculiarities).

         $ok = password_validate($passwd, $hash);

       arg1: $passwd ( string )
           Plain text password string

       arg2: $hash ( string )
           Encrypted or encoded hash. See below for supported hash formats.

       ret: $ok ( boolean )
           The password either matches or not.

       since: 2.0.00

       The function handles the output of the following functions (it knows to tell md5 and sha1
       from the others, since they are have a special pattern recognized by apr):

       ·   md5

           generated by "apr_md5_encode()" (for which at the moment we have no perl glue, ask if
           you need it).

       ·   sha1

           generated by "apr_sha1_base64()" (for which at the moment we have no perl glue, ask if
           you need it).

           and it's available only since Apache 2.0.50

       ·   crypt

           On all but the following platforms: MSWin32, beos and NetWare. Therefore you probably
           don't want to use that feature, unless you know that your code will never end up
           running on those listed platforms.

           Moreover on these three platforms if that function sees that the hash is not of md5
           and sha1 formats, it'll do a clear to clear text matching, always returning success,
           no matter what the hashed value is.

       Warning: double check that you understand what this function does and does not before
       using it.

Unsupported API

       "APR::Socket" also provides auto-generated Perl interface for a few other methods which
       aren't tested at the moment and therefore their API is a subject to change. These methods
       will be finalized later as a need arises. If you want to rely on any of the following
       methods please contact the the mod_perl development mailing list so we can help each other
       take the steps necessary to shift the method to an officially supported API.

   "filepath_name_get"
       META: Autogenerated - needs to be reviewed/completed

       [We have File::Spec and File::Basename for this purpose, I can't see why this api is
       needed]

       return the final element of the pathname

         $ret = filepath_name_get($pathname);

       arg1: $pathname ( string )
           The path to get the final element of

       ret: $ret ( string )
           the final element of the path

           For example:

             "/foo/bar/gum"    => "gum"
             "/foo/bar/gum/"   => ""
             "gum"             => "gum"
             "bs\\path\\stuff" => "stuff"

       since: subject to change

   "password_get"
       META: Autogenerated - needs to be reviewed/completed

       Display a prompt and read in the password from stdin.

         $ret = password_get($prompt, $pwbuf, $bufsize);

       arg1: $prompt ( string )
           The prompt to display

       arg2: $pwbuf ( string )
           Buffer to store the password

       arg3: $bufsize (number)
           The length of the password buffer.

       ret: $ret (integer)
       since: subject to change
