tcl::transform::crc32(n) 1 tcllib "Reflected/virtual channel support"

Name

tcl::transform::crc32 - Crc32 transformation

Synopsis

  • package require Tcl 8.6
  • package require tcl::transform::core ?1?
  • package require tcl::transform::crc32 ?1?

Description

The tcl::transform::crc32 package provides a command creating a channel transformation which passes the read and written bytes through unchanged (like tcl::transform::identity), but additionally continuously computes the crc32 checksums of the data it has seen for each direction and stores them in Tcl variables specified at construction time. The checksum in question is zlib's crc32.

Related transformations in this module are tcl::transform::adler32, tcl::transform::counter, tcl::transform::identity, and tcl::transform::observe.

The internal TclOO class implementing the transform handler is a sub-class of the tcl::transform::core framework.

API

::tcl::transform::crc32 chan -option value...

This command creates a crc32 checksumming transformation on top of the channel chan and returns its handle. The accepted options are

-read-variable varname

The value of the option is the name of a global or namespaced variable, the location where the transformation has to store the crc32 checksum of the data read from the channel.

If not specified, or the empty string, the checksum of the read direction is not saved.

-write-variable varname

The value of the option is the name of a global or namespaced variable, the location where the transformation has to store the crc32 checksum of the data written to the channel.

If not specified, or the empty string, the checksum of the write direction is not saved.

Bugs, Ideas, Feedback

This document, and the package it describes, will undoubtedly contain bugs and other problems. Please report such in the category virtchannel of the Tcllib Trackers. Please also report any ideas for enhancements you may have for either package and/or documentation.

When proposing code changes, please provide unified diffs, i.e the output of diff -u.
