Loading SHA-256 plugin

Paul DeBruicker
Hi-


What are the correct packages to load and what order should I load
them to be able to use the SHA-256 plug-in mentioned here:

Thanks

Paul

Re: Loading SHA-256 plugin

Hi!

If you want to use the plugin, just load Cryptography-ul.12.mcz. If  
you don't have VMMaker loaded into your image (you probably don't),  
then just proceed when you see the warning about missing  
InterpreterPlugin and SmartSyntaxInterpreterPlugin. To actually use  
the plugin you have to make sure that the vm can access it. This  
should return true if the vm can load the plugin: SHA256  
isPluginAvailable.
CryptoHashFunctionTest contains the tests for SHA256.

If you are under windows and don't want to build the plugin yourself,  
you can download it from here  
http://leves.web.elte.hu/cryptography/SHA256Plugin.dll
Otherwise set up an image with VMMaker then load  
Cryptography-ul.12.mcz. Build the SHA256Plugin as an external plugin.

The plugin probably won't work in 64-bit or big-endian environments  
and will crash your vm.

Cheers,
Levente
