I was just wondering if the javascript implementation of md5 (in the md5.js file) is compatible with the md5() function in PHP.

md5 is completely independant of the underlying system. It's implementaition varies from platform to platform, but essentially it's a standard. It's like comparing mac tcp/ip and windows tcp/ip. They're completely different pacages, but what they do is exactly the same. So yes, js and php md5 (lol assuming everything is working properly) should work nicely together.

I know that the algorithm SHOULD be the same, but I remember hearing that Java's implementation of md5 is incompatible with PHP's md5. I wanted to make sure that sure wasn't the case with one in md5.js.

In any event, thank you for your answer.

<shrugs> like i said, assuming it fully complies to the md5 spec, you shoulden't have any problems.
