Hash a key value
Compile and link with -lmemcachedutil -lmemcached
memcached_generate_hash_value() allows you to hash a key using one of the hash functions defined in the library. This method is provided for the convenience of higher-level language bindings and is not necessary for normal memcache operations.
The allowed hash algorithm constants are listed in the manpage for memcached_behavior_set().
As of version 0.36 all hash methods have been placed into the library libhashkit(3) which is linked with libmemcached(3). For more information please see its documentation.
A 32-bit integer which is the result of hashing the given key. For 64-bit hash algorithms, only the least-significant 32 bits are returned.
