Are you telling me that there is some sort of standardish c library hashing
api call ?
I know that FreeBSD appears to come with default with libmd which contains
md5 and sha1, and that you can get innumerable standalone library packages
from freshmeat that implement both, both for some annoying reason linux
distributions don't apppear to carry any of them by default, every little
half arsed app carries around an md5 or sha1 implementation of its own.
Herein are personal opinions, you'd want to be crazed to consider
these official positions of StarOffice/Sun or even vaguely congruent.
