Posted in migrating to php

Thanks for your help Jacob. I understand better now.

Posted in migrating to php

Hello,
I have inherited a ruby application and unfortunately have no knowledge of the language.
Could someone be so kind to help me figure out how to convert the below code to php?

  def generate_md5(*args)
    digest = Digest::MD5.new
    for arg in args do
      digest << arg.to_s
    end
    digest.hexdigest
  end

I have tried to get the same output in php, but I am failing.
I do not understand what happens in the for each loop.
The << seems to be equivalent to "update". What exactly does this update do?
Does it use the original hash, concatenate the new argument to it and hash the resulting string?
(this does not seem to generate the same output in php)
Or am I completely misunderstanding this (which is quite likely....)?
