NAME crc32 - compute CRC-32 checksums for the given files
SYNOPSIS crc32 filename [ filename ... ]
DESCRIPTION crc32 is a simple utility that calculates the CRC-32 checksum for each of the given files. Note that the CRC-32 checksum is merely used for error detection in transmission and stor‐ age. It is not intended to guard against the malicious modification of files (i.e., it is not a cryptographic hash). This utility is supplied with the Archive::Zip module for Perl.
SEE ALSO Archive::Zip(3pm).
AUTHOR The Archive::Zip module was written by Ned Konz. This manual page was prepared by Ben Burton <> for the Debian GNU/Linux sys‐ tem (but may be used by others).
