Need help with hash calculator

Recommended Posts

bryangoyett

OK so i am trying to make a hash calculator with a simple GUI using Microsoft's fciv (found here).

I need to be able to browse for a file then have it compute the MD5 and SHA-1 hash values and display them. How would i go about doing this? Any and all help is appreciated. And all info such as commands for fciv can be found at the link above...

Sorry, I do understand, but two things at once.

Do you want to write function that mimic these algorithms? or you want just to get MD5 and SHA-1 checksum of a file? (content, filename, strings...)

Unless you want to make a full fledge GUI, lookup the following functions:

FileOpenDialog

Run

MsgBox

Those should be able to make you a crude program to do what you want.

Any reason you need to use fciv? I know of several AutoIt versions of MD5 available, and, if there isn't one on yet, I have a version of SHA-1 that would work (as long as the file could be loaded in an autoit variable). I could update my function to do files of any size (just work on the file in chunks). It'd probably be slower than fciv (actually, it would be slower), so I'm just asking out of curiosity.
