SHA1 Digest in Perl.

Is SHA1.pm ( Perl module for SHA1 algorithm ) included in the perl download package from web? I ported a script from a Linux environment to an AIX environment. This script uses the SHA1 message digest. Although, perl exists on the AIX environment ( checked this using perl -v) , the script can't locate SHA1.pm!
What could the problem be?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Obviously, the problem is that SHA1 module is not included in the AIX Perl distributive…

Locate the module in CPAN, download and install it – sounds simple, but you might need to download and install some more modules on which SHA1.pm depends. Fortunately, the installer “knows” about dependencies and even if not download them automatically, it warns the user.

BTW, the CPAN link for your module:

http://search.cpan.org/~gaas/Digest-SHA1-2.13/

Good luck
