LibCRC API Reference – crc_64_we()

crc_64_we( input_str, num_bytes );


Parameter Type Description
input_str const unsigned char * The input byte buffer for which the CRC must be calculated
num_bytes size_t The number of characters in the input buffer

Return Value

Type Description
uint64_t The resulting CRC value


The function crc_64_we() calculates a 64 bit CRC value of an input byte buffer based on the 64 bit CRC calculation algorithm used by Wolfgang Ehrhardt in his FAR Manager plugin. The buffer length is provided as a parameter and the resulting CRC is returned as a return value by the function. The size of the buffer is limited to SIZE_MAX.
