Couple of days ago I was workingon setting up a clietn server
database, and wanted to handle passwords by using a standard
encryption (I wanted MD5). Did a search on Deja to see if anyone had
implemented it, and surprisingly, I saw a message saying all I had to
do was import the MD5 module.
Well, I looked through all my python directories, and there was no
MD5.py file, but I had faith (think it might have been /f who posted
the message) so I tried it, and surprisingly enough, it worked.
So my question is.... what other modules are setup the same way, and
how is it done? Are they just parts of the __builtins__ directory? Is
it done this way because of the US gov'ts rules about encyption/
Sorry, guess thats more than one question, was reminded about this
when I saw a message thi morning asking forthe SHA module
