in thread Fast string hash in portable perl?

I think this will be the fastest just because it is actually using compiled code in the perl bin to perform the hash. The only issue is that perls hash keygen does allow collisions and they are going to be much more frequent than lets say an md5 generator. it all depends what you are using it for.
