What properties do you want from your hash function that standard

None other that I need it to be running in a programming language called Avenue, this means I have to write one myself since none are included. I just need to check if two larger strings are identical, without actually sending the long stings off to the other end.
It should not be anything fancy, and quick to impliment.

If you don't need cryptographic strength, that is, no one is manipulating the strings to produce a hash collision, I recommend FNV hash as requiring the least code to implement.
