Tool to generate hash-digest from files and to locate duplicate (identical) files more easily.
This program uses code derived from the RSA Data Security, Inc. MD5 Message-Digest Algorithm.
See RFC-3174 with reference implementation of SHA1 algorithm.
Free to use and distribute. Wrote this in early 2011. Additional features in progress..
Primary motivation? To sort-out assloads of stuff with different compressions from about two decades..
For example, before MP3 there were tracker-modules (mods for short) which were created on computers to make noise. Those were then distributed all over the place to anyone who might want them: hence huge amounts of duplicates in collections..
Also, whenever there's file just name "File" or "headbone" it helps to identify what format it actually is.
Uses some stuff from my other projects:
Install by simply unzipping files to a wanted place. Qt DLLs also necessary, see separate package.
qFileDigest application binary and libraries QLha.dll and qLZXLib.dll(32-bit, Qt 4.7.2)
External requirements: Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86), 32-bit redistributable runtime libraries
