NAME

       Crypt::Checksum::CRC32 - Compute CRC32 checksum

SYNOPSIS

          ### Functional interface:
          use Crypt::Checksum::CRC32 ':all';

          # calculate CRC32 checksum from string/buffer
          $checksum_raw  = crc32_data($data);
          $checksum_hex  = crc32_data_hex($data);
          $checksum_int  = crc32_data_int($data);
          # calculate CRC32 checksum from file
          $checksum_raw  = crc32_file('filename.dat');
          $checksum_hex  = crc32_file_hex('filename.dat');
          $checksum_int  = crc32_file_int('filename.dat');
          # calculate CRC32 checksum from filehandle
          $checksum_raw  = crc32_file(*FILEHANDLE);
          $checksum_hex  = crc32_file_hex(*FILEHANDLE);
          $checksum_int  = crc32_file_int(*FILEHANDLE);

          ### OO interface:
          use Crypt::Checksum::CRC32;

          $d = Crypt::Checksum::CRC32->new;
          $d->add('any data');
          $d->add('another data');
          $d->addfile('filename.dat');
          $d->addfile(*FILEHANDLE);
          $checksum_raw = $d->digest;     # raw 4 bytes
          $checksum_hex = $d->hexdigest;  # hexadecimal form
          $checksum_int = $d->intdigest;  # 32bit unsigned integer

EXPORT

       Nothing is exported by default.

       You can export selected functions:

        use Crypt::Checksum::CRC32 qw(crc32_data crc32_data_hex crc32_data_int crc32_file crc32_file_hex crc32_file_int);

       Or all of them at once:

        use Crypt::Checksum::CRC32 ':all';

FUNCTIONS

   crc32_data
       Returns checksum as raw octects.

        $checksum_raw = crc32_data('data string');
        #or
        $checksum_raw = crc32_data('any data', 'more data', 'even more data');

   crc32_data_hex
       Returns checksum as a hexadecimal string.

        $checksum_hex = crc32_data_hex('data string');
        #or
        $checksum_hex = crc32_data_hex('any data', 'more data', 'even more data');

   crc32_data_int
       Returns checksum as unsigned 32bit integer.

        $checksum_int = crc32_data_int('data string');
        #or
        $checksum_int = crc32_data_int('any data', 'more data', 'even more data');

   crc32_file
       Returns checksum as raw octects.

        $checksum_raw = crc32_file('filename.dat');
        #or
        $checksum_raw = crc32_file(*FILEHANDLE);

   crc32_file_hex
       Returns checksum as a hexadecimal string.

        $checksum_hex = crc32_file_hex('filename.dat');
        #or
        $checksum_hex = crc32_file_hex(*FILEHANDLE);

   crc32_file_int
       Returns checksum as unsigned 32bit integer.

        $checksum_int = crc32_file_int('filename.dat');
        #or
        $checksum_int = crc32_file_int(*FILEHANDLE);

METHODS

   new
       Constructor, returns a reference to the checksum object.

        $d = Crypt::Checksum::CRC32->new;

   clone
       Creates a copy of the checksum object state and returns a reference to the copy.

        $d->clone();

   reset
       Reinitialize the checksum object state and returns a reference to the checksum object.

        $d->reset();

   add
       All arguments are appended to the message we calculate checksum for.  The return value is
       the checksum object itself.

        $d->add('any data');
        #or
        $d->add('any data', 'more data', 'even more data');

   addfile
       The content of the file (or filehandle) is appended to the message we calculate checksum
       for.  The return value is the checksum object itself.

        $d->addfile('filename.dat');
        #or
        $d->addfile(*FILEHANDLE);

       BEWARE: You have to make sure that the filehandle is in binary mode before you pass it as
       argument to the addfile() method.

   digest
       Returns the binary checksum (raw bytes).

        $result_raw = $d->digest();

   hexdigest
       Returns the checksum encoded as a hexadecimal string.

        $result_hex = $d->hexdigest();

   intdigest
       Returns the checksum encoded as unsigned 32bit integer.

        $result_int = $d->intdigest();
