Crypt::GCrypt error on new method
Message ID:
I am attempting to use gcrypt using a Perl interface
I have "perl -MCPAN -e 'install Crypt::GCrypt'" and installed it successfully.
I attempted to run the code in Perldoc, but get this error
    Can't locate object method "new" via package "GCrypt::Cipher" (perhaps you forgot to load "GCrypt::Cipher"?) at line 5.
Any ideas?
  use Crypt::GCrypt;
  $cipher = GCrypt::Cipher->new(
    type => 'cipher',
    algorithm => 'aes', 
    mode => 'cbc'
  $cipher->setkey('my secret key');
  $cipher->setiv('my init vector');
  $ciphertext = $cipher->encrypt('plaintext');
  $ciphertext .= $cipher->finish;
  $plaintext  = $cipher->decrypt($ciphertext);
