Thanks you!

That got me on the right path.  
Here's the working sample:

Hash  := Md5Print(MD5String(MyStringlist.Text));

It mentions: 'There are routines to calculate hashes from some buffer, or a hash from an entire file.'     So how does one make an MD5 Hash from 'some buffer' ?

 hash := Md5Hash(MyStringlist.Text);

I don't know the call to the MD5hash creator, but the content of the stringlist is available as property Text...
