Hi Naveen,


use Digest::MD5 qw(md5 md5_hex md5_base64);

and then

$chkpassword = $query->param("password");
$md5password = md5($chkpassword);

Then validate:

if (($chkuser eq $name) && ($md5password eq $password))



Note: This will load the Digest::MD5 module and give you access to the following functions:

md5 - returns the md5 digest as a binary string
md5_hex - returns as a hex string
md5_base64 - returns as a base64 encoded string

Depending on how the password has been hashed, you may need one of the other functions.

Let me know if this works.
