You're seeing just the function crc, go back to CRC module for more information.


crc(:crc_algorithm.params(), iodata()) :: :crc_algorithm.value()

Calculate a CRC checksum for the input based on the crc params given.

params can be an atom for one of the compiled models. See CRC.list/0 for a full list or a Map with parameters to create a model at runtime. The map given should have all of the following keys:

width - (unsigned integer) representation for the width of the CRC in bits poly - (unsigned integer) the polynomial used for the CRC calculation init - (unsigned integer) The initial value used when starting the calculation refin - (boolean) if the input value should be reflected. This is used for changing between endian's refout - (boolean) if the outvalue should be reflected when calculation is completed xorout - (unsigned integer) Final xor value used when completing the CRC calculation


  width: 16,
  poly: 0x1021,
  init: 0x00,
  refin: false,
  refout: false,
  xorout: 0x00

You can also extend one of the compiled models at runtime by creating a map with extend key set to the model you wish to extend and the keys you wish to override for that model.

For example to override the initial value for the :crc_16_ccitt_false model to 0x1D0F you would pass the following Map as params:

`%{extend: :crc_16_ccitt_false, init: 0x1D0F}`
