Today we are going to share a Python program to find hash of the file. If you are a python beginner and want to start learning the python programming, then keep your close attention in this tutorial as I am going to share a Python program to find hash of the file.
To increase your Python knowledge, practice all Python programs, here is a collection of 100+ Python problems with solutions.
Copy the below python program and execute it with the help of python compiler.
""""This function returns the SHA-1 hash
of the file passed into it"""
# make a hash object
h = hashlib.sha1()
# open file for reading in binary mode
with open(filename,'rb') as file:
# loop till the end of the file
chunk = 0
while chunk != b'':
chunk = file.read(1024)
message = hash_file("track1.mp3")
