No need to code it. You can use an existing one.

Alternatively, you can download sha1sum source code and learn how it is
written.

I replied to your previous idiotic thread. Fuck off.

Is this a homework assignment? If you honestly want help with this, you
need to provide more information too! If it isn't a homework
assignment, and you just want a program to do this, then I suggest you
follow up on Maxim's suggestion.

I am not sure it is possible to do what Pradeep wants -- if I understood
correctly, he wants to compute a fingreprint for every binary of a
distribution and have all fingerpirnts in one binary -- if that binary
must be the part of the same distribution it would be a difficult thing
to do. Seems to be an off-topic though..

Out of interest - how would one do it? I mean, if you have a binary
that must contain its own hash while having a known hash it seems to be
unsolvable - like the unbreakable safe with the blueprints to it stored
inside.
