Ttuuxxx has created a lovely little PET package for generating md5 and sha1 hashes (these are signatures that we use to verify integrity of a file).

Ttuuxx has also integrated it into ROX-Filer so that for .pet, .tar.bz2, .iso, .tar.gz and .sfs files there is an entry in the right-click menu to launch Gtkhash.

This will be in 4.3beta3.

Great stuff :)

Now please add HTop as well. This little app was also in Puppy 4.2.1 It's more useful than Pprocess and Top combined.

Smaller Gtkhash?

"A note, for ttuuxxx or anyone else interested. Gtkhash is an executable (31KB) and a library libmhash (27KB), also gui.xml (27KB). I know that's pretty small, but busybox has md5sum, sha256sum and sha512sum applets, so in theory we could write a tiny gtkdialog-based GUI that would be about 1KB. It can support drag-and-drop also.

"Hi The full version of gtkhash does around 20 different hashes, but I removed them all in the compile. I also in the past during the 4.2 build for someone to possibly build a small gui like gtkhash, but nobody answered the call, and the smallest version of gtkhash at the time was a bit over 200kb pet, Thats before I noticed the options in ./configure script in libhash :) Anyways I'm happy any which way it goes, Its just nice to have the right click option in rox, I also have right click options in rox for xfburn, If i rt click on a iso image, I can burn iso image, or erase cd/rw dvd/rw or gtkhash :) No menus needed. maybe a future addon for pfind? ttuuxxx
