Why don't you create a database table with two columns. One column is "the string", and the other column is a unique integer. Most databases have an almost inexhaustible supply of unique integers for such columns.

    Integers need to be created on the fly when an html file is being requested.
    I just tried:
    pin = int( htmlpage.encode("hex"), 16 )
    but that also fails.

    The number needs to be a 4-digit integer only, if its to be stored in the database table correctly. So hex encoding is not usefull here.

      I did not mention a "hex encoding" anywhere in my reply. I suggest you actually read my reply, and use a database, or a "key value store", and build a map of words to numbers.

        No...no that would be complex.
        I just need a way to CONVERT a string(absolute path) to a 4-digit unique number with INT!!! That's all i want!! But i cannot make it work :(

        And the best part is that "that" number must be able to turn back into a path.

        This way i DON'T EVEN HAVE TO STORE THE ACTUAL HTML PAGE'S ABSOLUTE PATH!!!!

        1. User requests a specific html page( .htaccess gives my script the absolute path for that .html page)
        2. I turn the path into a 4-digitnumber
        3. i store that number to the database. I DONT EVEN HAVE TO STORE THE PATH TO THE DATABASE ANYMORE!!! this is just great!
