Thank you Paul. but Crypt:: package and its modules within are not shipped with core Perl, correct? In fact, the only encryption of any sort that I found and is distributed by Perl itself is just MD5, I'm afraid.

    MD5 is not an encryption algorithm.

    Modules in the core need to be supported practically forever. It's definitely not a good place to put encryption modules, since those become obsolete fairly fast.

    So what if it's not in the core.

    Yeah, Perl doesn't come with very much stuff. It may even come with too much stuff. It's intended to be used with The CPAN, so it's a little silly to try to measure it without that awesome resource.
