I'm doing a my own research with searching-engine, but I got
only SHA algorithm. I wish only a simplified digest algorithm (like
MD5) for generating relatively small keys.

Ah! I forgotten the md5sum in tcl-addon, thanks for tip. I wish
only to understand how to reduce the key length and how to implement
in Perl.

Thannks Tom,
