The $sha256() function returns the SHA-256 hash value of <data> represented as a 64-hex-digit string. This is the value that is used for AES+SHA and SED+SHA crypto. This function is intended more for debugging the builtin sha256 support than for use in a script.
$sha256(booya booya booya boo) returns 62ea80ca6a21d4ab1fec0c5c3227b593ed04309474be04ca03ea74d91fa09c34
The $sha256() function first appeared in EPIC5-0.3.1.
