Thanks for the poniter, I'am aware of these (phash is deprecated, use phash2
instead?).

I'm interested in some fast and well distributed hash functions made by
gurus in this domain like lookup3 (Bob Jenkins -
http://burtleburtle.net/bob/hash/doobs.html), SuperFasthash (Paul Hiesh -
http://www.azillionmonkeys.com/qed/hash.html) ...

Does someone spend time on them or have an Erlang version?

Thanks
Zabrane
