Md5() is a SAS function and there is no need to install it.
Give a String with a length less than 256 bytes and get a 16-byte value. An example:
mymd5 = md5("This is a big string");

Are you asking about the SAS function MD5? The function takes any string as the argument and returns a 128-bit hash value.
data junk; y = md5('abc'); z = md5('access method'); put y= / y = hex32.; put z= / z = hex32.; run;
