File::Digest - Calculate digests of files
This document describes version 0.011 of File::Digest (from Perl distribution File-Digest), released on 2019-11-29.
use File::Digest qw(digest_files);
my $res = digest_files(
files => ["file1", "file2"],
algorithm => 'md5', # default md5, available also: crc32, sha1, sha256
This module provides some convenience when you want to use Digest against files.
digest_file(%args) -> [status, msg, payload, meta]
Calculate digest of file.
Return 400 status when algorithm is unknown/unsupported.
This function is not exported.
Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments):
algorithm => str (default: "md5")
digest_args => array[str]
file* => filename
Filename ("-" means stdin).
Returns an enveloped result (an array).
First element (status) is an integer containing HTTP status code (200 means OK, 4xx caller error, 5xx function error). Second element (msg) is a string containing error message, or 'OK' if status is 200. Third element (payload) is optional, the actual result. Fourth element (meta) is called result metadata and is optional, a hash that contains extra information.
Return value: (any)
digest_files(%args) -> [status, msg, payload, meta]
Calculate digests of files.
Dies when algorithm is unsupported/unknown.
This function is not exported by default, but exportable.
files* => array[filename]
Array of filenames (filename "-" means stdin).
