md5 (md5 function)

The md5 function computes the MD5 (Message-Digest algorithm 5) of a string. MD5 is a widely used, Internet standard (RFC 1321), hash function that computes a 128-bit hash, that is commonly used to check the integrity of files. It is not recommended for serious cryptographic protection, for which strong hashes should be used.

Example

q)md5 "this is a not so secret message"
