Given that MD5 is actually a ratified algorithm, I would say yes.

There however may be differences in the implementation of each algorithm that cause the output to be different. If this is the case, you'll have to proove which one is incorrect against a known correct hash.

Another difference may be in the output method you choose, for example:

  • $digest = md5($data);
  • $digest = md5_hex($data);
  • $digest = md5_base64($data);
    Taken from the perldoc Digest::MD5

    Fundimentally, if the algorithm has been composed following the rfc you will have no worries.

    Title:
    Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
    and:  <code> code here </code>
    to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



    • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
    • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
      <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
    • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible editor intervention).
    • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
