Thanks for the input.

I am afraid you use of the phrase "Pure Perl" is confusing me. Normally I would take this to mean a module that is implemented purely in Perl (without any calls to C etc), but that is not the way you are using it (since at least the CPAN implementations of Blowfish and Rijndael I am using have binary elements).

I guess when you say "Pure Perl" you are focusing on the fact that these can be obtained from CPAN (and / or ActiveState) rather than the other challange of implementing modules on OSs that provide an inadequate set of tools for developers (where if perl is available but there is no good freely available C compiler a Pure Perl module will always work).

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
