Hash and Checksum Functions

The following hash and checksum functions are available in APL:

  • Checksum functions-  Generates a checksum based on the cksum or CRC-32 algorithms for a supplied argument.
  • Hash functions - Uses the algorithms MD2, MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, SHA-384, or SHA-512 to turn input of arbitrary length into an output of fixed length
