Fast, pure and practical MD5 implementation


A practical incremental and one-pass, pure API to the < MD5 hash algorithm> (including < HMAC> support) with performance close to the fastest implementations available in other languages.

The implementation is made in C with a haskell FFI wrapper that hides the C implementation.

NOTE: This package has been forked off 'cryptohash-0.11.7' because the 'cryptohash' package has been deprecated and so this package continues to satisfy the need for a lightweight package providing the MD5 hash algorithm without any dependencies on packages other than 'base' and 'bytestring'.

Consequently, this package can be used as a drop-in replacement for 'cryptohash''s "Crypto.Hash.MD5" module, though with a clearly smaller footprint.
