Limbic~Region has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I no longer code but I am helping someone update some legacy code that they "borrowed" from me a years ago.
use Digest::MD5 'md5'; my $foo = 'hello, world!'; print unpack('q', md5($foo));
They only have stock 32-bit Perl 5.10.1 and a very restricted environment (don't ask). Is there a way to do the above in 32-bit perl? They can use any module that shipped with 5.10.1 as well as any pure perl module that they could easily copy/paste.

Cheers - L~R
