digest.hash_md5

STRINGdigest.hash_md5STRINGs

Available in all subroutines.

Returns an MD5 hash for the string s. MD5 is not considered a secure cryptographic hash.

Example

declare local var.hash_md5 STRING;
set var.hash_md5 = digest.hash_md5("123456789");
# var.hash_md5 is now "25f9e794323b453885f5181f1b624d0b"
