I heard that
Quote:they are hash md5($uri); of your URI. so its similar to controllername+function name but in a hashed format.

Why codeigniter hashes files named 


 with md5? Is it necessary? Or security option? Even if, what does it secure and how?
And main question, Can I turn it off, to have files in cache folder named like 'controller+function' ? And how to achieve it?
