HashFNV1a32 ( text ; empty )
The initial value for "empty" must be empty ("")

This function computes the 32-bit binary hash for the input text based on the FNV-1a algorithm

This function requires the following functions:
Bin2dec ( bin ; empty )
Dec2bin ( decimalNumber ; empty )
XORbin ( bin0 ; bin1 ; empty )

This custom function was written by Vaughan Bromfield on 14 March 2010.

This function is based on the algorithm published at:

It should AFAIK produce the same results. ------ // HashFNV1a32 ( text ) // // This function computes the 32-bit binary hash // for the input text based on the FNV-1a algorithm // // This function requires the following functions: // Bin2dec() // Dec2bin() // XORbin() // // This custom function was written by Vaughan Bromfield // vbromfield@optusnet.com.au // 14 March 2010 // // This function is based on the algorithm published at: // http://www.isthe.com/chongo/tech/comp/fnv/index.html // http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fowler_Noll_Vo_hash // // The local \$variable is used to carry the result to the next recursion instead of a function parameter.

Thanks! P Sanchez, Jacksonville, FLMay 13, 2011 sorry, decrypt... Vaughan, Sydney, AustraliaMay 14, 2011 This is a hash function. There is no way to "decrypt" a hash function. Hash functions are not reversible.
