abstract class Digest

Overview

Digest is the base type of hashing algorithms like Digest::MD5, Digest::SHA1, Digest::SHA256, or Digest::SHA512.

A Digest instance holds the state of an ongoing hash calculation. It can receive new data to include in the hash via #update, #<<, or #file. Once all data is included, use #final to get the hash. This will mark the ongoing calculation as finished. A finished calculation can't receive new data.

A digest.dup.final call may be used to get an intermediate hash value.

Use #reset to reuse the Digest instance for a new calculation.

Instance Method Detail

def <<(data) : self #

Reads the io's data and updates the digest with it.


[View source]
abstract def digest_size : Int32 #

Returns the digest output size in bytes.


[View source]
def file(file_name : Path | String) : self #

Reads the file's content and updates the digest with it.


[View source]
def final(dst : Bytes) : Bytes #

[View source]
def final : Bytes #

Returns the final digest output.

This method can only be called once and raises FinalizedError on subsequent calls.

NOTE .dup.final call may be used to get an intermediate hash value.


[View source]
abstract def final_impl(dst : Bytes) : Nil #

Stores the output digest of #digest_size bytes in dst.


[View source]
def reset : self #

[View source]
abstract def reset_impl : Nil #

Resets the object to it's initial state.


[View source]
def update(data : Bytes) : self #

[View source]
def update(io : IO) : self #

Reads the io's data and updates the digest with it.


[View source]
def update(data) : self #

[View source]
abstract def update_impl(data : Bytes) : Nil #

Hashes data incrementally.
