Description

string md5 ( string str [, bool raw_output] )

Calculates the MD5 hash of str using the RSA Data Security, Inc. MD5 Message-Digest Algorithm , and returns that hash. The hash is a 32-character hexadecimal number. If the optional raw_output is set to TRUE , then the md5 digest is instead returned in raw binary format with a length of 16.

<?php
$str = 'apple';

if (md5($str) === '1f3870be274f6c49b3e31a0c6728957f') {
    echo "Would you like a green or red apple?";
    exit;
}
?>
