cityhash: Bindings to CityHash

[ codec, library, mit ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package implements a binding to the CityHash family of hashing functions (implemented in C++.)

See for more information.

This package has optional SSE4.2 support. If you build it with the -fsse42 flag, the 128-bit hashing functions will use an SSE-optimized implementation (which takes advantage of the crc32 instruction present on recent Intel/AMD machines.) The 64-bit hashing functions are unaffected.

Automatic Flags

Use -f <flag> to enable a flag, or -f -<flag> to disable that flag. More info

CityHash bindings for Haskell

CityHash is a family of fash (non-cryptographic) hashing functions, written by Google.

These are the awesome Haskell bindings.


It's just a cabal install away:

$ cabal install cityhash
