Hashing Value Online

Hashing means converts a large, possibly variable-sized amount of data into a small datum, usually a single integer that may serve as an index into an array.The values returned by a hash function are called hash values, hash codes, hash sums, or simply hashes.

We are dealing with hash value in most of the time, especially during encryption,
password protection or some privacy stuffs.

Some times I need to get the hash value of some "data" during the support process,
especially for debugging purpose, But it can be annoying if i still need to write a
small function to hash the "data".

Therefor, i try googling and found few online hash value generators,
I just simply choose one and found it quite useful. The interface is pretty simple and
straight forward, just enter value and click to process.

The site will return results in several formats, which is Adler32, CRC32, Haval, MD2, MD4, MD5, RipeMD128, RipeMD160, SHA, Tiger, Whirlpool, etc.
