sha1 - manipulate sha1 message digests
SHA1 is NIST's Secure Hashing Algorithm (also known as Secure Hashing
Standard) with the minor modification that they proposed on 7/11/94.
To make type:
The configure script will deduce $PREFIX from the tcl installation.
The generated Makefile uses the file $PREFIX/lib/tclConfig.sh that was left by
the make of tcl for most of its configuration parameters.
The Makefile generates pkgIndex.tcl files that are compatible with
tcl7.6. If you are using tcl7.5 then you will need to edit
$PREFIX/lib/pkgIndex.tcl by hand.
sha1 ?-log2base log2base? -string string
sha1 ?-log2base log2base? ?-copychan chanID? -chan chanID
sha1 -init (returns descriptor)
sha1 -update descriptor ?-maxbytes n? ?-copychan chanID? -chan chanID
sha1 ?-log2base log2base? -final descriptor
Switches can be in any order.
Returns a sha1 digest in base 2 ** log2base ascii representation.
log2base defaults to 4, i.e. hex representation.
log2base length chars
1 160 01 (binary)
2 80 0..3
3 54 0...7 (octal)
4 40 0..9a..f (hex)
5 32 0..9a..v
6 27 0..9a..zA..Z_,
(The characters in the digest string have been chosen to be usable in
filenames so that the sha1 command can be used, for example,
to digest URLs into shorter strings for filenames in a cache.)
In the -string version, returns sha1 digest of string.
In the -chan version, returns list of 2 items: length of data
in chanID followed by sha1 digest of all data in chanID. ChanID is
identifier returned from "open" for example. If -copychan is supplied,
will also copy all data from chanID to copychanID.
In the third form, -init returns a descriptor, -update can be called
any number of times with that descriptor and returns the number of
bytes read, and -final returns the result in the same form as the
