Check SFV (Simple File Verification)


Some files that you download will come with a .sfv file. This is used to verify that the files that you received are the same as the originals. cksfv is a program that can use the .sfv file to verify the downloaded files. Also, it can be used to create new .sfv files.


Originally this is Bryan Call's project. I decided to start maintain this project since I (Heikki Orsila) couldn't reach the developer with a 64-bit architecture fix. The original project page is here. I'd be happy to let him maintain this useful tool, if he contacted me.

Supported OS

Should work on most UNIXes.
