GetHashFromFile

Generates a hash over the contents of the specified file.

Syntax

HRESULT GetHashFromFile(
  LPCSTR szFilePath,
  unsigned int *piHashAlg, 
  BYTE *pbHash,    
  DWORD cchHash,    
  DWORD *pchHash
);   

Parameters

szFilePath [in]
The name of the file to hash.
piHashAlg [in/out]
The algorithm to use when generating the hash. Valid algorithms are those defined by the Win32 crypto APIs. If piHashAlg is set to 0, the default algorithm CALG_SHA1 is used.
pbHash [out]
A byte array containing the generated hash.
cchHash [in]
The maximum size of the buffer pointed to by pbHash.
pchHash [out]
The actual number of bytes returned in pbHash.
