Provides several hashing algorithms for node.js by binding to mhash

NOTE: MacOS X users need to have XCode installed (provides gcc)

Installation with NPM

npm install mhash --python=python2


Syntax: hash("algo-type", String || Buffer)
//First argument is a string, one of the supported algorihms below.
//Second argument can either be a String or a Buffer.
var hash = require("mhash");
console.log(hash("md2", "testing"));

Known Issues

The crc32 and crc32b may not be what you expect due the way the mhash library computes these.

See Issue #1 for more details.
