my $hash_64 = xxhash64( $data, $seed );
my $hex_64 = xxhash64_hex( $data, $seed );
my $hash_64 = xxhash3_64bits( $data, $seed );

my $hex_128 = xxhash3_128bits_hex( $data, $seed );
DESCRIPTION
xxHash is a super fast algorithm that claims to work at speeds close to
RAM limits. This package provides 32- and 64-bit hash functions. As
bonus it provides 128-bit hex method.
This package was inspired by "Digest::xxHash", but it includes the fresh
C code and has some optimisations. Thus all hex methods are implemented
in Perl XS. Also this module doesn't use "Math::Int64" in favor of
native 64 bit digits.
The used version of xxHash is v0.8.0
$h = xxhash32( $data, $seed )
Returns a 32 bit hash.
$h = xxhash32_hex( $data, $seed )
Returns a 32 bit hash converted into hex string.
$h = xxhash64( $data, $seed )
Returns a 64 bit hash.
$h = xxhash64_hex( $data, $seed )
Returns a 64 bit hash converted into hex string
$h = xxhash3_64bits( $data, $seed )
Returns a 64 bit hash which calculated by using xxHash3 algorithm.
$h = xxhash3_64bits_hex( $data, $seed )
Returns a 64 bit hash which calculated by using xxHash3 algorithm. This
hash is converted into hex string.
$h = xxhash3_128its_hex( $data, $seed )
Returns a 128 bit hash which calculated by using xxHash3 algorithm. This
hash is converted into hex string.

BENCHMARKS
Below you can find some benchmarks in comparison with "Digest::xxHash".
The "xxhash32" methods in those two packages have the same realisation.
so they have the same throughput capacity.
But other methods have some differences:
