Calculates the Hash of a file according to a specific algorithm. You have the ability to calculate:
  • a simple hash.
  • a hash with message authentication.
Reminder: The hashing is used to summarize a file or a character string. This summary is called Hash.

Remarks

Notes

  • Two files with an identical content will have, for the same type of algorithm, two identical Hashes.
  • The result of the Hash may contain non-displayable characters. These characters will not be visible when using Info or Trace for example.

Availability of algorithms

PHP
  • The available algorithms depend on the configuration of the PHP server.
  • The TIGER algorithms are not available.The SHA-3 algorithms are not available.
AndroidAndroid Widget Java Only the following algorithms are supported:
  • HA_MD5_128
  • HA_SHA_160, HA_SHA_256, HA_SHA_384, HA_SHA_512
  • HA_HMAC_MD5_128
  • HA_ HMAC_SHA_160, HA_HMAC_SHA_256, HA_HMAC_SHA_384, HA_SHA_HMAC_512.

Wrong hash Algorithm in example
// Calculate the Hash of two files
Hash1 is Buffer = HashFile(HA_MD5_128,"C:\My files\FileA.txt")
Hash2 is Buffer = HashFile(HA_MD5_128,"D:\My files\FileB.txt")
// Compare the two Hashes
IF Hash1 = Hash2 THEN Info("The two files are identical.")
