Here's a question that floated past my view:
Anybody know if there exists a library for computing MD5 hashes from unmanaged code? MSDN has information about .NET classes, but nothing about the unmanaged side.
Hm, let's see.
C:\Windows SDK\Include> grep MD5 *.h wincrypt.h:#define ALG_SID_MD5 3 wincrypt.h:#define ALG_SID_SSL3SHAMD5 8 wincrypt.h:#define CALG_MD5 (ALG_CLASS_HASH | ALG_TYPE_ANY | ALG_SID_MD5) wincrypt.h:#define CALG_HUGHES_MD5 (ALG_CLASS_KEY_EXCHANGE|ALG_TYPE_ANY|ALG_SID_MD5) wincrypt.h:#define CALG_SSL3_SHAMD5 (ALG_CLASS_HASH | ALG_TYPE_ANY | ALG_SID_SSL3SHAMD5) wincrypt.h:#define KP_PRECOMP_MD5 24 wincrypt.h:#define szOID_RSA_MD5RSA "1.2.840.1135184.108.40.206" wincrypt.h:#define szOID_RSA_MD5 "1.2.840.113549.2.5"
Use this exact same technique to answer
this commenter's question
on how the C#
++ operator works.
Since this is a question about the C# language,
the C# language specification
would be a good starting point.
Exercise: Use this technique to answer this commenter's question on how to connect to a process as a debugger.
