Bug#908175: ITP: xxhash -- Extremely fast hash algorithm




Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Norbert Preining <norbert@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

* Package name    : xxhash
  Version         : 0.6.5
  Upstream Author : Yann Collet
* URL             : http://www.xxhash.com/
* License         : GPL (utility), BSD (library)
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : Extremely fast hash algorithm

xxHash is an Extremely fast Hash algorithm, running at RAM speed limits.
It successfully completes the SMHasher test suite which evaluates collision,
dispersion and randomness qualities of hash functions. Code is highly portable,
and hashes are identical on all platforms (little / big endian).


Necessary for newer versions of dvisvgm.
Only Go versions (3!) and R is available:
	golang-github-cespare-xxhash-dev - implementation of the 64-bit xxHash algorithm (XXH64)
	golang-github-oneofone-xxhash-dev - native implementation of the excellent XXHash hashing algorithm
	golang-github-pierrec-xxhash-dev - pure Go implementation of xxHash (32 and 64 bits versions)
	r-cran-digest - GNU R package for 'hash digest' of R data structures

Best
