Installation and Updating

$ go get -u github.com/btcsuite/btcd/chaincfg/chainhash

GPG Verification Key

All official release tags are signed by Conformal so users can ensure the code has not been tampered with and is coming from the btcsuite developers. To verify the signature perform the following:

  • Download the public key from the Conformal website at https://opensource.conformal.com/GIT-GPG-KEY-conformal.txt

  • Import the public key into your GPG keyring:

    gpg --import GIT-GPG-KEY-conformal.txt
    
  • Verify the release tag with the following command where TAG_NAME is a placeholder for the specific tag:

    git tag -v TAG_NAME

Overview

Package chainhash provides abstracted hash functionality.

This package provides a generic hash type and associated functions that allows the specific hash algorithm to be abstracted.

Index

Constants

View Source
const HashSize = 32

HashSize of array used to store hashes. See Hash.

View Source
const MaxHashStringSize = HashSize * 2

MaxHashStringSize is the maximum length of a Hash hash string.

Variables

View Source
var ErrHashStrSize = fmt.Errorf("max hash string length is %v bytes", MaxHashStringSize)

ErrHashStrSize describes an error that indicates the caller specified a hash string that has too many characters.

Functions

func Decode

func Decode(dst *Hash, src string) error

Decode decodes the byte-reversed hexadecimal string encoding of a Hash to a destination.

func DoubleHashB

func DoubleHashB(b []byte) []byte

DoubleHashB calculates hash(hash(b)) and returns the resulting bytes.

func HashB

func HashB(b []byte) []byte

HashB calculates hash(b) and returns the resulting bytes.

Types

type Hash

type Hash [HashSize]byte

Hash is used in several of the bitcoin messages and common structures. It typically represents the double sha256 of data.

func DoubleHashH

func DoubleHashH(b []byte) Hash

DoubleHashH calculates hash(hash(b)) and returns the resulting bytes as a Hash.

func HashH

func HashH(b []byte) Hash

HashH calculates hash(b) and returns the resulting bytes as a Hash.

func NewHash

func NewHash(newHash []byte) (*Hash, error)

NewHash returns a new Hash from a byte slice. An error is returned if the number of bytes passed in is not HashSize.

func NewHashFromStr

func NewHashFromStr(hash string) (*Hash, error)

NewHashFromStr creates a Hash from a hash string. The string should be the hexadecimal string of a byte-reversed hash, but any missing characters result in zero padding at the end of the Hash.

func (*Hash) CloneBytes

func (hash *Hash) CloneBytes() []byte

CloneBytes returns a copy of the bytes which represent the hash as a byte slice.

NOTE: It is generally cheaper to just slice the hash directly thereby reusing the same bytes rather than calling this method.

func (*Hash) IsEqual

func (hash *Hash) IsEqual(target *Hash) bool

IsEqual returns true if target is the same as hash.

func (*Hash) SetBytes

func (hash *Hash) SetBytes(newHash []byte) error

SetBytes sets the bytes which represent the hash. An error is returned if the number of bytes passed in is not HashSize.

func (Hash) String

func (hash Hash) String() string

String returns the Hash as the hexadecimal string of the byte-reversed hash.
