DESCRIPTION

MD2, MD4, and MD5 are cryptographic hash functions with a 128-bit output.
MD2(), MD4(), and MD5() compute the MD2, MD4, and MD5 message digest of the n bytes at d and place it in md, which must have space for MD2_DIGEST_LENGTH == MD4_DIGEST_LENGTH == MD5_DIGEST_LENGTH == 16 bytes of output. If md is NULL, the digest is placed in a static array.
The following functions may be used if the message is not completely stored in memory:
MD2_Init() initializes a MD2_CTX structure.
MD2_Update() can be called repeatedly with chunks of the message to be hashed (len bytes at data).
MD2_Final() places the message digest in md, which must have space for MD2_DIGEST_LENGTH == 16 bytes of output, and erases the MD2_CTX.
MD4_Init(), MD4_Update(), MD4_Final(), MD5_Init(), MD5_Update(), and MD5_Final() are analogous using an MD4_CTX and MD5_CTX structure.
Applications should use the higher level functions EVP_DigestInit(3) etc. instead of calling these hash functions directly.

RETURN VALUES

MD2(), MD4(), and MD5() return pointers to the hash value.
MD2_Init(), MD2_Update(), MD2_Final(), MD4_Init(), MD4_Update(), MD4_Final(), MD5_Init(), MD5_Update(), and MD5_Final() return 1 for success or 0 otherwise.
