Find the Hash of File in Python

# Python rogram to find the SHA-1 message digest of a file
# import hashlib module
import hashlib
def hash_file(filename):
""""This function returns the SHA-1 hash
of the file passed into it"""
# make a hash objectv 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'':
# read only 1024 bytes at a time
chunk = file.read(1024)
h.update(chunk)
# return the hex representation of digest return h.hexdigest()
message = hash_file("track1.mp3") print(message)


Output:
