Package description

What is crc?

The crc npm package is used for generating cyclic redundancy check (CRC) codes for various input data. CRC is a popular method for detecting accidental changes to raw data in digital networks and storage devices. The package supports multiple CRC algorithms and can be used in various applications where data integrity is crucial.

What are crc's main functionalities?

CRC32 Calculation

This feature allows the calculation of CRC32 checksum for the input string 'hello world'. It is useful for verifying the integrity of strings or files.

const crc = require('crc');
const result = crc.crc32('hello world');
console.log('CRC32:', result);

CRC16 Calculation

This feature computes the CRC16 checksum for the given string. It's commonly used in telecommunications and storage for error-checking.

const crc = require('crc');
const result = crc.crc16('hello world');
console.log('CRC16:', result);

CRC1 Calculation

This feature calculates a simple CRC1 checksum, which can be used for basic error detection in scenarios where minimal data corruption checks are needed.

const crc = require('crc');
const result = crc.crc1('hello world');
console.log('CRC1:', result);

Installation

npm install crc

Usage

Using specific CRC is the recommended way to reduce bundle size:

import crc32 from 'crc/crc32';
crc32('hello').toString(16);
// "3610a686"

Alternatively you can use main default export:

import crc from 'crc';
crc.crc32('hello').toString(16);
// "3610a686"

If you really wish to minimize bundle size, you can import CRC calculators directly and pass an instance of Int8Array:

import crc32 from 'crc/calculators/crc32';
const helloWorld = new Int8Array([104, 101, 108, 108, 111, 32, 119, 111, 114, 108, 100]);
crc32(helloWorld).toString(16);
// "3610a686"

CommonJS is supported as well without the need to unwrap .default:

const crc32 = require('crc/crc32');
crc32('hello').toString(16);
// "3610a686"

Calculate a CRC32 of a file:

crc32(fs.readFileSync('README.md', 'utf-8')).toString(16);
// "127ad531"

Or using a Buffer:

crc32(fs.readFileSync('README.md', 'utf-8')).toString(16);
// "127ad531"

Incrementally calculate a CRC:

let value = crc32('one');
value = crc32('two', value);
value = crc32('three', value);
value.toString(16);
// "9e1c092"

Tests

npm test
