xxhash GoDoc Build Status Coverage

This is a native Go implementation of the excellent xxhash* algorithm, an extremely fast non-cryptographic Hash algorithm, working at speeds close to RAM limits.

  • The C implementation is (Copyright © 2012-2014, Yann Collet)

Install

go get github.com/OneOfOne/xxhash

Features

  • On Go 1.7+ the pure go version is faster than CGO for all inputs.
  • Supports ChecksumString{32,64} xxhash{32,64}.WriteString, which uses no copies when it can, falls back to copy on appengine.
  • The native version falls back to a less optimized version on appengine due to the lack of unsafe.
  • Almost as fast as the mostly pure assembly version written by the brilliant cespare, while also supporting seeds.
  • To manually toggle the appengine version build with -tags safe.

Usage

	h := xxhash.New64()
	// r, err := os.Open("......")
	// defer f.Close()
	r := strings.NewReader(F)
	io.Copy(h, r)
	fmt.Println("xxhash.Backend:", xxhash.Backend)
	fmt.Println("File checksum:", h.Sum64())

TODO

  • Rewrite the 32bit version to be more optimized.
  • General cleanup as the Go inliner gets smarter.
