ZipCrc Tcl Reference Documentation


Current Version:

Calculate a Zip CRC checksum for a file or in-memory data.

Object Creation

set myZipCrc [new CkZipCrc]


boolean 1/0
set boolVal [CkZipCrc_get_LastMethodSuccess $myZipCrc]
CkZipCrc_put_LastMethodSuccess $myZipCrc $boolVal

Indicate whether the last method call succeeded or failed. A value of 1 indicates success, a value of 0 indicates failure. This property is automatically set for method calls. It is not modified by property accesses. The property is automatically set to indicate success for the following types of method calls:

  • Any method that returns a string.
  • Any method returning a Chilkat object, binary bytes, or a date/time.
  • Any method returning a standard boolean status value where success = 1 and failure = 0.
  • Any method returning an integer where failure is defined by a return value less than zero.

Note: Methods that do not fit the above requirements will always set this property equal to 1. For example, a method that returns no value (such as a "void" in C++) will technically always succeed.

boolean 1/0
set boolVal [CkZipCrc_get_Utf8 $myZipCrc]
CkZipCrc_put_Utf8 $myZipCrc $boolVal

When set to 1, all "const char *" arguments are interpreted as utf-8 strings. If set to 0 (the default), then "const char *" arguments are interpreted as ANSI strings. Also, when set to 1, and Chilkat method returning a "const char *" is returning the utf-8 representation. If set to 0, all "const char *" return values are ANSI strings.




Provides a way to calculate a CRC by streaming the data a chunk at a time. An application would start by calling BeginStream. Then it would add data by calling MoreData for each additional chunk. After the last chunk has been processed, the EndStream method is called to return the CRC.

# data is a CkByteData
set retInt [CkZipCrc_CalculateCrc $data]

Calculates a 32-bit CRC for in-memory byte data. This is the 32-bit CRC that would be found in a Zip file header if a file containing the data was added to a zip archive. Returns the CRC32 of the data.

set retInt [CkZipCrc_EndStream]

Finalizes and returns the Zip CRC value calculated by calling BeginStream followed by multiple calls to MoreData.

# path is a string
set retInt [CkZipCrc_FileCrc $path]

Calculates the CRC32 of a file. The data contained in the file is streamed for the calculation to keep the memory footprint small and constant. Returns the CRC32 of the file.

FileCrcAsync (1)
# returns a CkTask
# path is a string
set ret_task [CkZipCrc_FileCrcAsync $path]

Creates an asynchronous task to call the FileCrc method with the arguments provided. (Async methods are available starting in Chilkat v9.5.0.52.)

Returns NULL on failure

# data is a CkByteData
CkZipCrc_MoreData $data

Adds additional data to the CRC currently being calculated. (See BeginStream for more information.)

# crc is an integer
# outStr is a CkString (output)
set status [CkZipCrc_ToHex $crc $outStr]
set retStr [CkZipCrc_toHex $myZipCrc $crc]

Converts a 32-bit integer to a hex string.

Returns 1 for success, 0 for failure.
