Arguments: string &key start end external-format return

Using md4-init (which creates a context), md4-update (which updates the context with the argument string), and md4-final (which finalizes the hash), this function computes the MD4 hash for string.

The start and end arguments specify the portion of the string to be considered and the external-format argument specifies the external hashing of the string that will be used to update the context. start defaults to 0, end defaults to the length of string, and external-format defaults to the default external format. These arguments, along with string, are passed to md4-update.

The format of the result, just as for md4-final, is determined by the return keyword argument. The possible values are :integer, :usb8, and :hex. See md4-final for information on these values and the corresponding formats of the returned value.

cl-user(18): (md4-string "foo")
cl-user(19): (md4-string "foo" :return :usb8)
#(10 198 112 12 73 29 112 251 134 80 ...)
