Re: Suggestions wanted: how to generated MD5-encrypted passwords?

There is a perl module (called MD5 appropriately enough) that does MD5 
hash generation for arbitrary input data.  I guess than tweaking it to do 
the right thing for the passwd encoding should be very simple indeed - 
just a case of apprpriately building the input string and then converting 
the output binary string into the correct textual format.

[I do something like this with an in-house password encryption system we 
use - MD5 based with the output passed through the MIME:Base64 module to 
make it text.]
