I have this homenode [perlmonks.org] of little consequence on Perl Monks [perlmonks.org] that you probably have no interest in whatsoever.

I also have some modules [cpan.org] on CPAN [cpan.org] some of which are marginally [cpan.org] more [cpan.org] useful [cpan.org] than others.

Novell Netware checksum

[ #37015 ]

Dear lazyweb,

When I rightclick on a file on my work Windows system and go to File-Properties, there's a "NetWare Version" tab which has a "View Version, Copyright, and Check Sum Info" button. When you click that, you get a 48-bit checksum of the file in hex. Does anyone know how this checksum is calculated, or even how to find an external exe to run (or a dll and how to use it) to get this value? I've tried comparing the value against as many known checksum algorithms as possible before tearing my hair out.

Update: and why I want this? We are currently required to enter this value into some document, and the only way to cut n paste it is via screen copy...you can not copy just the text.

Update: nevermind...we have switched to using Jacksum.
