Package dirhash defines hashes over directory trees. These hashes are recorded in go.sum files and in the Go checksum database, to allow verifying that a newly-downloaded module has the expected content.
DirFiles returns the list of files in the tree rooted at dir, replacing the directory name dir with prefix in each name. The resulting names always use forward slashes.
Hash1 is the "h1:" directory hash function, using SHA-256.
Hash1 is "h1:" followed by the base64-encoded SHA-256 hash of a summary prepared as if by the Unix command:
find . -type f | sort | sha256sum
More precisely, the hashed summary contains a single line for each file in the list, ordered by sort.Strings applied to the file names, where each line consists of the hexadecimal SHA-256 hash of the file content, two spaces (U+0020), the file name, and a newline (U+000A).
File names with newlines (U+000A) are disallowed.
HashDir returns the hash of the local file system directory dir, replacing the directory name itself with prefix in the file names used in the hash function.
HashZip returns the hash of the file content in the named zip file. Only the file names and their contents are included in the hash: the exact zip file format encoding, compression method, per-file modification times, and other metadata are ignored.
A Hash is a directory hash function. It accepts a list of files along with a function that opens the content of each file. It opens, reads, hashes, and closes each file and returns the overall directory hash.
