// MD5 stands for Message Digest algorithm 5.
// MD5 is a robust hash function, designed for cyptography, but often used
// for file checksums. The code is complex and slow, but has few
// collisions.
// See Also:
// These functions perform MD5 operations. The simplest call is MD5Sum() to
// generate the MD5 sum of the given data.
// You can also compute the MD5 sum of data incrementally by making multiple
// calls to MD5Update():
// MD5Context ctx; // intermediate MD5 data: do not use
// MD5Init(&ctx);
// MD5Update(&ctx, data1, length1);
// MD5Update(&ctx, data2, length2);
// ...
// MD5Digest digest; // the result of the computation
// MD5Final(&digest, &ctx);
// You can call MD5DigestToBase16() to generate a string of the digest.
// The output of an MD5 operation.
