* http://github.com/jmhodges/murmur_hash

== DESCRIPTION:

* A ruby extension for the MurmurHash2 functions from http://murmurhash.googlepages.com

== FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

* Provides all 3 versions of the 32-bit MurmurHash functions which
  are:
  
  * `MurmurHash.murmur_hash`, the simplest and fastest version of
    MurmurHash2. Note: output depends on the endianness of the machine
    it is run on.
  * `MurmurHash.neutral_murmur_hash`, a version of the
    straight-forward MurmurHash2 function that does not depend on the
    endianness of the machine it is run on. Slightly slower.
  * `MurmurHash.aligned_murmur_hash`, a version of the MurmurHash2
    function that does only byte-aligned reads. It is slightly safer
    on some uncommon platforms.

* Provides the 64-bit MurmurHash function. When on a 32-bit machine,
  it will use the backward compatible version.

== SYNOPSIS:

  # 23 can be any unsigned 32-bit integer (i.e. from 0 to 2**32 - 1)
  hash_number = MurmurHash.murmur_hash("somestring", 23) 

  h = MurmurHash.neutral_murmur_hash("s", 23)
  h = MurmurHash.aligned_murmur_hash("s", 23)

  # 23 must still be a unsigned 32-bit integer
  h = MurmurHash.murmur_hash64("s", 23)

== REQUIREMENTS:

* rake-compiler for compilation

== INSTALL:

* sudo gem install murmur_hash
