Hi all,

Read this report written by Mark Schonewille:
http://quality.runrev.com/qacenter/show_bug.cgi?id=2410

Mark Waddingham post this function:

function quasiMD5 pFile
  local tMD5s
  open file pFile for binary read
  repeat
    read from file pFile for 4096 chars
    if the result is EOF then
      exit repeat
    end if
    put the md5digest of it after tMD5s
  end repeat
  close file pFile
  return the md5Digest of tMD5s
end quasiMD5

But when i run this function, Rev
consumes all memory available.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Al
