Document fingerprint generator

Project Description

# Fingerprint – Document Fingerprint Generator

## Fingerprint of a document Fingerprint is a signature of the document. In particular, it is a representative subset of hash values from the set of all hash values of a document. For more detail, please consider taking a look at [Winnowing: Local Algorithms for Document Fingerprinting]( (specifically Figure 2).

## Super simple to use Fingerprint is very simple to use. `python f = Fingerprint(kgram_len=4, window_len=5, base=10, modulo=1000) print f.generate(str="adorunrunrunadorunrun") print f.generate(fpath="/Users/test/docs/CHANGES.txt") ` The default values for the parameters are `python kgram_len = 50 window_len = 100 base = 101 modulo = sys.maxint `

## Install `sh pip install fingerprint `
