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  storage.   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
