Does anybody can give me a c++ piece of code to decrypt a password crypted in md5 using openssl because ther are a lot of functions but I don't understand how to use them.

md5 is one way encryption. You can't take an MD5 hash and come out with the original. What you can do is take what you think the original is, do an md5 sum on it, and compare the hashes.

The OpenSSL MD5 Function Manpage will tell you how to make MD5 hashes.

A lot of people use PHP for md5(), and when they use a C++ implementation it doesn't always return the same hash.

This implementation's hashes match that of php .
c++ md5 source code
