Expand description

An implementation of the MD5 cryptographic hash algorithm.


use md5::{Md5, Digest};
use hex_literal::hex;

// create a Md5 hasher instance
let mut hasher = Md5::new();

// process input message
hasher.update(b"hello world");

// acquire hash digest in the form of GenericArray,
// which in this case is equivalent to [u8; 16]
let result = hasher.finalize();
assert_eq!(result[..], hex!("5eb63bbbe01eeed093cb22bb8f5acdc3"));
