"Jacksum is a free and platform independent
software for computing and verifying checksums,
CRCs and message digests, as known as hash values
and fingerprints. Jacksum is a synthetic word made
of JAva and ChecKSUM.

Jacksum supports 58 popular algorithms (Adler32,
BSD sum, Bzip2's CRC-32, POSIX cksum, CRC-8,
CRC-16, CRC-24, CRC-32 (FCS-32), CRC-64, ELF-32,
eMule/eDonkey, FCS-16, GOST R 34.11-94, HAS-160,
HAVAL (3/4/5 passes, 128/160/192/224/256 bits),
MD2, MD4, MD5, MPEG-2's CRC-32, RIPEMD-128,
RIPEMD-160, RIPEMD-256, RIPEMD-320, SHA-0, SHA-1,
SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, SHA-512, Tiger-128,
Tiger-160, Tiger, Tiger2, Tiger Tree Hash, Tiger2
Tree Hash, Unix System V sum, sum8, sum16, sum24,
sum32, Whirlpool-0, Whirlpool-1, Whirlpool and

Jacksum is written entirely in Java, and it
requires a Java Runtime Environment. It runs also
on a FOSS JRE, like gij. Jacksum is released under
