Create cryptographic hash digests of R objects

The digest package provides two functions for the creation of `hash' digests of arbitrary R objects using the md5 and sha-1 algorithms permitting easy comparison of R language objects. The md5 algorithm by Ron Rivest is specified in RFC 1321. The SHA-1 algorithm is specified in FIPS-180-1. This packages uses two small standalone implementations by Christophe Devine. Please note that this package is not meant to be used for cryptographic purposes for which more comprehensive (and widely tested) libraries such as OpenSSL should be used.
