The sha Module

The sha module provides an alternative way to calculate message signatures, as shown in Example 2-39. It's similar to the md5 module, but generates 160-bit signatures instead.

Example 2-39. Using the sha Module


import sha

hash =
hash.update("spam, spam, and eggs")

print repr(hash.digest())
print hash.hexdigest()


See the md5 examples for more ways to use sha signatures.
