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 C implementations (that were provided by by Christophe
Devine) of the md5 and sha-1 algorithms.
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.
