+ <longdescription>
+ A practical incremental and one-pass, pure API to the
+ &lt;https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SHA-1 SHA-1 hash algorithm&gt;
+ (including &lt;https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMAC HMAC&gt; support)
+ with performance close to the fastest implementations available in other languages.
+
+ The implementation is made in C with a haskell FFI wrapper that hides the C implementation.
+
+ NOTE: This package has been forked off @cryptohash-0.11.7@ because the @cryptohash@ package has been
+ deprecated and so this package continues to satisfy the need for a lightweight package
+ providing the SHA1 hash algorithm without any dependencies on packages other than
+ @base@ and @bytestring@.
+
+ Consequently, this package can be used as a drop-in replacement for @cryptohash@&#39;s
+ &quot;Crypto.Hash.SHA1&quot; module, though with a clearly smaller footprint.
