Simple MD5 comparison utility
« on: May 30, 2010, 01:41:47 AM »
I wrote this mainly for me, but in case someone wants it for the same reason I wrote it, here's brief overview.  The reason I wrote it is because I couldn't find any MD5 sum apps that did exactly what I wanted: Accept a file as a command-line parameter and compare the resulting MD5 sum with the text in the clipboard.  I use it with FreeCommander and I assume it could be used with Total Commander as well.  It closes with the Escape button, so it takes one keystroke to run it, and another one to close it.

Comments are welcome.

works well just as an MD5 checksum should.. btw, do you have any plans to include SHA1 as well?

also here are the config screens for Totalcmd and Salamander.

@lanux128 Adding SHA1 is a good idea.  I'll take a look.  Thanks for the instructions on how to use it with Total Commander and Salamander.

I've added a few features, including SHA-1, drag and drop support, a menu and a status bar to indicate what's going on.  It's extremely keyboard friendly so you don't have to touch the mouse.

Any feedback is welcome.

@jaden: a small request, can Snap MD5 be made to auto-copy the MD5 of a given file and exit after that?

something like: SnapMD5.exe <filename> /copymd5 /exit

PS. thanks again for SnapMD5, it works very well for me. :Thmbsup:

@lanux128 Where does the MD5 get copied with the /copymd5 option?  To the clipboard?
