.B crc
file ...
For each file,
.I 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 useful in detecting subtle disk corruption.
.I Crc\^
uses a checksum compatible with the
version 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

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

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
