A reminder of why I don’t miss Ruby

About two minutes if thumbing around the official documentation for Ruby’s standard library, I quickly realised it would be faster to Google how to use the module for MD5/SHA* stuff than read the official stuff:

    def encrypt_password
      # This is just a place holder implementation for now
      require ‘digest’
      self.password = Digest::SHA512.hexdigest(password)
Compare the documentation for Ruby’s Digest to Pythons’ hashlib. Even an uncommented C++ header file would be more useful than the docs for Ruby’s Digest module :-S.
