  CHECKSUM data /part length /tcp /secure /hash size /method word /key key-value


Computes a checksum, CRC, or hash. CHECKSUM is a native value.


  • data -- Bytes to checksum (binary!)


  • /part
    • length -- Length of data
  • /tcp -- Returns an Internet TCP 16-bit checksum
  • /secure -- Returns a cryptographically secure checksum
  • /hash -- Returns a hash value
    • size -- Size of the hash table (integer!)
  • /method -- Method to use
    • word -- Methods: SHA1 MD5 CRC32 (word!)
  • /key -- Returns keyed HMAC value
    • key-value -- Key to use (any-string!)
