in thread Using filepath method to identify an .html page

The perl code will produce the same hash for "abc.html" as for "bca.html"

In any case, the likelihood of a hash collision for any non-trivial website is substantial. If you hash 100 files you have about a 40% chance of a collision.

If you hash 220 files, the likelihood is about 90%
