Subject: Memory use is O(n)
[Note] This bug report was originally filed in Debian, the bug URL is http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=342543 for further reference. I'm copying here the original bug submitter's email. Digest::CRC keeps the whole message in an internal buffer. This makes it slower than neccessary for large files, because the message is swapped out. Files larger than the available memory can't be checked at all.
This is a known issue and will be fixed in the next release (0.10). Release 0.10 is currently in test phase and will be released within a few days. Oliver
new release 0.10 fixes the reported memory issue. Oliver
