 void reset()
          reset the digest back to it's initial state.
 void update(byte in)
          update the message digest with a single byte.
 void update(byte[] in, int inOff, int len)
          update the message digest with a block of bytes.
 

Method Detail

getAlgorithmName

java.lang.String getAlgorithmName()
return the algorithm name

Returns:
the algorithm name

getDigestSize

int getDigestSize()
return the size, in bytes, of the digest produced by this message digest.

Returns:
the size, in bytes, of the digest produced by this message digest.

update

void update(byte in)
update the message digest with a single byte.

Parameters:
in - the input byte to be entered.

update

void update(byte[] in,
            int inOff,
            int len)
update the message digest with a block of bytes.

Parameters:
in - the byte array containing the data.
inOff - the offset into the byte array where the data starts.
len - the length of the data.

doFinal

int doFinal(byte[] out,
            int outOff)
close the digest, producing the final digest value. The doFinal call leaves the digest reset.

Parameters:
out - the array the digest is to be copied into.
outOff - the offset into the out array the digest is to start at.

reset

void reset()
reset the digest back to it's initial state.
