Looking for a way to encrypt a short string with MD5 from Progress v.9.
Anyone have a proven method ?
With Progress V9 you will have to use an external program interface or messaging to access a function that implements MD5 hashing. Direct support for MD5 in ABL is included with OpenEdge 10: see the ABL MD5-DIGEST function in the Language Refernce Manual.
You can use this tool for instance http://www.fourmilab.ch/md5/ with an "INPUT.. THROUGH" statement to fetch the standard output of the MD5-value
An MD5 encrypter is available on the PEG utilities page (http://www.peg.com/utilities.html).
