does anyone know of an on-disk MD5 hashing implementation
Posted on 2004-10-12
I've got an app that has to compute MD5 hashes on teh binary of files quickly and on disk. I've got an in-memory hashing dll - but its not feasible for files over a hundred meg because it requires the entire file to be read into memory. true - the OS's virtual memory system will handle this - but its not efficient.
Does anyone know of an on-disk MD5 hash implementation?
I'm developing for windows XP (using VB) but i'm a C programmer - so if it were for a different platform we could port it.
any thoughts anyone?
