These functions are intended to work with » 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.
To use it, download the mhash distribution from » its web site and follow the included installation instructions.
You need to compile PHP with the
--with-mhash[=DIR] parameter to enable
this extension. DIR is the mhash install directory.
以下常量由本扩展模块定义，因此只有在本扩展模块被编译到 PHP 中，或者在运行时被动态加载后才有效。
Here is a list of hashes which are currently supported by mhash. If a hash is not listed here, but is listed by mhash as supported, you can safely assume that this documentation is outdated.
$input = "what do ya want for nothing?";
$hash = mhash(MHASH_MD5, $input);
echo "The hash is " . bin2hex($hash) . "<br />\n";
$hash = mhash(MHASH_MD5, $input, "Jefe");
echo "The hmac is " . bin2hex($hash) . "<br />\n";
This will produce:
The hash is d03cb659cbf9192dcd066272249f8412
The hmac is 750c783e6ab0b503eaa86e310a5db738
