Description

string sha1 ( string str [, bool raw_output] )

Calculates the sha1 hash of str using the US Secure Hash Algorithm 1 , and returns that hash. The hash is a 40-character hexadecimal number. If the optional raw_output is set to TRUE , then the sha1 digest is instead returned in raw binary format with a length of 20.

$str = 'apple';
                     
if (sha1($str) === 'd0be2dc421be4fcd0172e5afceea3970e2f3d940') {
    echo "Would you like a green or red apple?";
    exit;
}
?>
