I'm going through the online documentation for Ruby 1.8.4 and looking at Digest/MD5 classes and methods. There is one class method for the MD5 class, which is md5. I have Ruby 1.8.2 but this md5 function doesn't seem to be supported. The way to hash something on my computer is to use hexdigest method of the MD5 class yet I can't see it in the 1.8.4 online documentation. Could this be a difference in Ruby versions or am i missing something? I'm not really a wiz bang programmer but i find reading the PHP documentation a litte easier (its got examples and stuff).
