Package: PHP Murmurhash
Hashing operations help check the integrity of data that may be transmitted between a source computer and a destination computer to detect data transmission failures caused by external interferences.
In environments in which security is an important aspect, developers should use cryptographic hashing algorithms to detect malicious alteration of data by people with bad intentions.
In environments where security is not essential due to the low risk of alteration of data by bad-intentioned people, developers can use non-cryptographic algorithms.
Such algorithms do not require so much CPU processing power and can run faster.
Murmurhash is a non-cryptographic algorithm.
This package provides a pure PHP implementation of the Murmurhash algorithm. Therefore it does not require that particular cryptography PHP extensions are available to use this class.
About the PHP Murmurhash Package
The package PHP Murmurhash is one of the few PHP packages that was considered notable recently because it does something that is worth paying attention.
The basic purpose is: Generate hash values of a string using Murmurhash
Here follows in more detail what it does:
This package can generate hash values of a string using Murmurhash.
It takes a given string and a seed integer value as parameters.
The package computes the hash value of the string using the Murmurhash algorithm.
The PHP Murmurhash can be downloaded from download page or be installed using the PHP Composer tool following instructions in the Composer install instructions page.
This package was considered notable for implementing its benefits in a way that is worth noticing.
Notable PHP packages can be often considered innovative. If this package is also innovative, it can be nominated to the PHP Innovation Award and the author may win prizes and recognition for sharing innovative packages.
If you also developed your own notable or innovative packages consider sharing them, so you can also earn more visibility for your package as well nice prizes.
One nice prize that many PHP developers want and you may like is the PHP elePHPant mascot plush.
