Description:JMD5Sum is a graphical file MD5 sum calculator and verifier, written in Java for cross-platform portability.
When installed in Windows, it will create the Windows Explorer associations so that you can calculate checksums by right clicking files or folders, and verify checksums by double-clicking md5 files. Other platform users will have to use the command line (run java -jar jmd5sum.jar to get the command line help). I hope I can find some free time to add an automatic installer for Linux.
Requirements:JRE 6 Current features:Two modes of operation: calculates the checksum of the given files and directories (recursively) into a md5 file, and matches file checksums against a md5 file Progress indicators: size, speed and ETA, for both current file and total Windows Explorer integration (If installed using the windows installer package) Current issues:md5 files are written and read in UTF-16. This was made so in order to correctly store file names using a different codepage than the system locale. However, it makes generated md5 files incompatible with other md5 software (like command line md5sum). A workaround is to convert the md5 files (in windows this can be done by opening the file in notepad, selecting "Save as" and choosing either ANSI or Unicode). I plan to add an encoding setting in the future. The source code is plain ugly. I used to be a good coder, but it's surprising how rusty you can get when you don't code often. Suggestions are welcome. Future features:md5 file encoding settings Installer or similar for the different flavors of Linux
