crc - print the checksum of the file data SYNOPSIS
crc file ... EXAMPLES
crc *.c # Print checksums of all the C programs DESCRIPTION
The checksum of each argument is computed and printed, along with the file length and its name, one file per line. This program is useful for seeing if a file transmitted to another machine has arrived correctly. It is conceptually similar to sum, except that it uses a stronger checksum algorithm and also prints the length. SEE ALSO
cksum(1), sum(1). CRC(1)

crc32 - Perform a 32bit Cyclic Redundancy Check SYNOPSIS
package require Tcl 8.2 package require crc32 ?1.0? ::crc::crc32 ?-format format? ?-seed value? ?-implementation procname? message ::crc::crc32 ?-format format? ?-seed value? ?-implementation procname? -filename file DESCRIPTION
This package provides a Tcl-only implementation of the CRC-32 algorithm based upon information provided at dard/crc32/document.html If the Trf package is available then the crc-zlib command is used to perform the calculation. COMMANDS
::crc::crc32 ?-format format? ?-seed value? ?-implementation procname? message ::crc::crc32 ?-format format? ?-seed value? ?-implementation procname? -filename file The command takes string data or a file name and returns a checksum value calculated using the CRC-32 algorithm. The result is for- matted using the format(n) specifier provided or as an unsigned integer (%u) by default. OPTIONS
-filename name Return a checksum for the file contents instead of for parameter data. -format string Return the checksum using an alternative format template. -seed value Select an alternative seed value for the CRC calculation. The default is 0xffffffff. This can be useful for calculating the CRC for data structures without first converting the whole structure into a string. The CRC of the previous member can be used as the seed for calculating the CRC of the next member. Note that as the Trf command crc-zlib cannot accept a seed value, use of this option will force the use of the Tcl only implementa- tion. -implementation procname This hook is provided to allow users to provide their own implementation (perhaps a C compiled extension) or to explicitly request use of the Tcl only implementation when Trf is installed (by setting -implementation crc::Crc32_tcl. The procedure specfied is called with two parameters. The first is the data to be checksummed and the second is the seed value. A 32bit integer is expected as the result. EXAMPLES
% crc::crc32 "Hello, World!" 3964322768 % crc::crc32 -format 0x%X "Hello, World!" 0xEC4AC3D0 % crc::crc32 -file crc32.tcl 483919716 SEE ALSO

cksum does not give me crc32

Is cksum the right command to calculate the crc32 checksum value? I tried it for a number of files now and every time the results dont match. So there is nothing wrong with the file. Also, cksum gives me an all numerical value while crc32 is alpha numeric. What am I doing wrong? Thanks (9 Replies)
