MD5 for PostgreSQL 7.3.4

P: n/a
I'm looking for a function that returns a md5 encryption for postgreSQL 7.3.4

I've found that this function exists on version 7.4, but I have had problems installing it on my Windows XP with Cygwin, so I need to found it for version 7.3

Anyone can help me?

Sorry about my english, i'm spanish

Sure it does. See README.pgcrypto:

"SQL FUNCTIONS
=============

If any of arguments are NULL they return NULL.

digest(data::bytea, type::text)::bytea

Type is here the algorithm to use. E.g. 'md5', 'sha1', ...
Returns binary hash."
