It would be very handy to be able to create an MD5 hash from a string. I am working with a few API's (eg: Mailchimp) that require an MD5 hash for various functions.
Come on MS, this would be so easy to implement.
I have the need for this. I wish to compare PDF files, and use it as a check to see if files have been updated.
I did try doing a file content equality, which I thought was working... but apparently was not.
