in reply to Using filepath method to identify an .html page
pin = int ( '/home/nikos/public_html/index.html' )
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.
pin = int( htmlpage.encode("hex"), 16 )
Will int function get the job done or a hashing method needs to get involved?
Read int and then you will know, then write your own function
I dont know HOW this is supposed to be written.
Keep a database of numbers ( AnyDBM_File ), assign one to each path, and then you're done
