Introduction

These functions are intended to work with ยป mhash. Mhash can be used to create checksums, message digests, message authentication codes, and more.

This is an interface to the mhash library. mhash supports a wide variety of hash algorithms such as MD5, SHA1, GOST, and many others. For a complete list of supported hashes, refer to the documentation of mhash. The general rule is that you can access the hash algorithm from PHP with MHASH_HASHNAME. For example, to access TIGER you use the PHP constant MHASH_TIGER.

Note:

This extension is obsoleted by Hash.
