Given that MD5 is a 32 bit hash, does it mean it can number 4 billion different floppy disks? While I assume all possible combinations of every bit of Commodore software ever released would by far exceed 4 billion combinations, perhaps for official disk releases it would be enough for this purpose. A 256 bit hash most certainly should be able to individually keep apart every possible combination of all Commodore programs ever made, if it has up to 10^77 combinations? Or maybe my combinatoric skills are misleading me on this. Best regards Anders Carlsson Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2017-05-12 08:00:03
