Hashed passwords are great if your purpose is to check whether a given password is valid.

Which is what I understand the original requirements to be. They are a bit unclear - I interpreted them as needing to check a password, you interpreted them as needing a password in clear text (perhaps to pass to a DB or something else).

[marto]: of course I can take you to some of the best/worst bars in Glasgow ;)
[LanX]: is Glasgow that city where catholics and protestants fight in bars? ; )
[marto]: not really, but pick your side, we'll visit some real dumps
