Module std.digest.md

Computes MD5 hashes of arbitrary data. MD5 hashes are 16 byte quantities that are like a checksum or CRC, but are more robust.

Category Functions
Template API MD5
OOP API MD5Digest
Helpers md5Of

This module conforms to the APIs defined in std.digest. To understand the differences between the template and the OOP API, see std.digest.

This module publicly imports std.digest and can be used as a stand-alone module.

Example

//Template API
import std.digest.md;

//Feeding data
ubyte[1024] data;
MD5 md5;
md5.start();
md5.put(data[]);
md5.start(); //Start again
md5.put(data[]);
auto hash = md5.finish();

Example

//OOP API
import std.digest.md;

auto md5 = new MD5Digest();
ubyte[] hash = md5.digest("abc");
writeln(toHexString(hash)); // "900150983CD24FB0D6963F7D28E17F72"

//Feeding data
ubyte[1024] data;
md5.put(data[]);
md5.reset(); //Start again
md5.put(data[]);
hash = md5.finish();
