1) your username is obviously a pseudonym, and identified by multiple 
websites as a troll.  Further, your actions conform to the description 
on at least one of those websites.

2) Your replies are mostly of the forms:
     a) but I want a car that gets 300 miles to the gallon
     b) I know you explained that, but would you write all the code for me
     c) I haven't read any of the literature on computer science, so 
please build me a perpetual motion machine.  Never mind there's a better 
way to solve my problem, I don't want to hear it
     d) I'll ignore any message that I don't understand

3) The time that the OP spends ostensibly trying to get help is time 
he's spending for his own benefit.  The time that all the experienced 
people on here are spending has been mostly to try to help the OP. 
That's a big difference.

Your last code sample was in perl, and while I can read it (and have 
worked in it when it was absolutely necessary) I choose not to.  But 
just fixing a hash so it doesn't confuse abc with cba will NOT take away 
the very real probability of collisions.  Those calculations I did for 
you were for the ideal hash.  Most are much worse than that.

And increasing the range of pin from 10000 to 100000 will reduce the 
chances of collision, but not by nearly enough.  It still only takes 
about 150 average samples to get a collision likelihood of over 10%

You think it's an accident that md5 size is roughly equivalent to 39 
decimal digits?  Or that the ones that haven't been proven insecure are 
much larger than that?  The sha512 hash is roughly equivalent to 154 
decimal digits.
