I have taken the time to create a GitHub repository for my old Hash Verifier software which you can now find here. I’ve even created different releases to reflect the evolution of the software as found on this website. Hopefully this will make it even easier for you to check out and play around with. GitHub repository link: https://github.com/tylerburton/hashverifier Version 0.1.0.0 (Original post) Version 0.2.0.0 (Original post) Version 0.3.0.0 (Original post)
I honestly don’t remember how I came across this awesome project but I am certainly glad I did! XMLVM is a software toolchain which is designed to take cross-compilation to a whole new level. Rather than just offer OS portability, XMLVM is able to actually offer OS, hardware and programming language portability. Here’s how it works: you write a program in a programming language of your choice, say .NET. Once compiled you send it through the first step of XMLVM which analyzes the produced CIL and creates an XML document out of it.
That’s right an update to your favourite hash verification program! 😛 This update includes a few new features that some of you might find useful. It also includes help documentation which walks you through how to use it! New Features Menu strip for even easier use Export features allows you to automatically write all of the hashes to a single file About dialog that provides information about the program Help documentation Requirements:
Some of you may remember an old Windows program of mine called Hash Verifier. It was a graphical utility that allowed people to generate hashes of their files, and then compare those to known hashes, ensuring that their files had not been corrupted. Well in recent months my foray into the world of Linux has finally taken me into the realm of programming on that platform. Being primarily a .NET developer on Windows I have found the Mono project on Linux to be an absolute breath of fresh air.
[Update: A new version has been released! Click here to go to the new software page] On the old version of this site I had provided a popular application called Hash Verifier which did, of all things, verify file hashes on Windows. I know some people are still trying to link to it’s old location so I figured I might as well include it somewhere in the new site. So here it is!
