It's a good function. Works like a charm. Is there some kind of
documentation on Radius::Radius or the whole Radius module (as implemented
in Radiator)? Seems there are a lot nifty functions just waiting to be
BTW, although check_plaintext_password works as advertised, it won't work
for us because it just hit me: we've stored clients' password using DES
crypt(). If Radius::Radius::check_plaintext_password can work with that,
I'd like to know how!
