To hash a file in Laravel, you can use the hash_file function provided by PHP's hash library. Here is an example of how to hash a file in Laravel:

  1. Import the Hash facade at the top of your file:
1
use IlluminateSupportFacadesHash;


  1. Use the hash_file function to hash the file. You can pass the file path as the first argument and the desired hash algorithm as the second argument. For example, to hash a file using the SHA-256 algorithm:
1
2
$filePath = 'path/to/file.txt';
$hashedValue = Hash::hashFile('sha256', $filePath);


The hashedValue variable will now contain the hashed value of the file. You can use this value as needed in your application.
