cfv is a utility to both test and create .sfv (Simple File Verify), .csv, .crc, .md5(sfv style), md5sum, BSD md5, sha1sum, and .torrent checksum verification files. It also includes test-only support for .par and .par2 files. These files are commonly used to ensure the correct retrieval or storage of data.

Release Notes: This release fixes Python 2.6 MD5 and SHA module deprecation warnings.
Release Notes: Help output is printed to stdout under non-error conditions. A mmap file descriptor leak in Python 2.4.2 was worked around. The different module layout of BitTorrent 5.x is supported. A "struct integer overflow masking is deprecated" warning was fixed. The --private_torrent flag was added. A bug was worked around in 64-bit Python version 2.5 and later which causes checksums of files larger than 4GB to be incorrectly calculated when using mmap.
Release Notes: This release includes fixes for progress meter with non- regular files. The list of checksum types in --help output is now sorted, and -t help (or -t with unknown type) prints a list of the supported types, with descriptions.
Release Notes: This release adds .torrent creation support, and makes torrent testing automatically strip the top path component if needed. It fixes an mmap error on large files, a too many open files error on large torrents, bad file renaming with .torrent files on Windows, and a TypeError that occurred if forcing --progress=yes when not running on a TTY and the COLUMNS var was set. sha1sum file support has been added.
Release Notes: This release adds an -s option to search for misnamed files, handles .torrent files that have the creation date encoded as a string, handles .torrent files that specify the filename encoding, makes .torrent support try the BitTornado module if BitTorrent isn't found, fixes exceptions when trying to print Unicode filenames containing non-ASCII characters, and fixes some minor issues in --strippaths, filename unquoting, and CSV parsing.
