Staff Pick: Checksum

We recently wrote a small article on how to run a checksum routine on files as an extra verification against file corruption or incorrect file download. The way to check this is to run a simple "openssl" terminal command for a specific message digest routine (SHA1, MD5, etc). For people who need to run checksums on either multiple files or very frequently, "Checksum" is a perfect utility for this.

Built as a cocoa wrapper to the built-in "openssl" command, it provides you with a drag-and-drop interface that will output the various checksums available for the given file.

The latest version (v1.5) has just been released and is available from the developer's site: http://www.entropy.ch/software/macosx/#checksum
