Checksum Improvements

Tuesday, April 22, 2014


Just a quick update, some checksum improvements have been contributed to Factor.

Some new checksums have been implemented:

And some checksum performance has been improved:

  • checksums.md5 is a lot faster (benchmark is 0.080 vs 0.583 seconds)
  • checksums.sha is a bit faster (benchmark is 0.418 vs 0.686 seconds)

You can find these changes (and more!) in the development version of Factor.
