NAME
       crc - checksum files

SYNOPSIS
       crc file ...

DESCRIPTION
       For  each file, crc calculates and prints a 32-bit CRC, the byte count, and the file name.
       It is typically used to validate files transferred between different systems, and is  use-
       ful in detecting subtle disk corruption.  Crc uses a checksum compatible with the DOS ver-
       sion of crc, the 32 bit CRC used by PKZIP version 0.9, as well as  the  "crc"  command  in
       ZCOMM and Professional-YAM (high reliability communications programs).

       The  32-bit  CRC used is the frame check sequence in ADCCP (ANSI X3.66, also known as FIPS
       PUB 71 and FED-STD-1003, the U.S. versions of CCITT's X.25 link-level protocol).

BUGS
       Although extremely unlikely, files with different data may  still  produce  the	same  crc
       value.
