digest.hash_crc32

STRINGdigest.hash_crc32STRINGs

Available in all subroutines.

Returns a CRC-32 digest for the string s. CRC-32 is not a cryptographic hash and is typically used as a fast error-detecting code for detecting changes in raw data.

Example

declare local var.crc32 STRING;
set var.crc32 = digest.hash_crc32("123456789");
# var.crc32 is now "181989fc"
