I have a large array and want to calculate its hash-code using
Array#hash.

i.e. ["a","b","c"].hash

I want to store this hash-code in a database table.

Can anyone tell me (or point me in the right direction to find out), the
maximum length (in characters) of such a hash-code.

On my development machine the hash-code is always small enough to fit
into a int(11) field, but I don't know what factors influence its
calculation.

Thanks in advance.
