checkcopy is a GUI tool to copy the files and directories to some destination while creating checksums and/or verifying them. It reads all the checksum files, then reads in each file to copy it to the destination. If a checksum is present for the file, it will be verified, otherwise the checksum is written out to disk.
FDRDF is a tool that builds a catalogue of descriptions in an RDF representation of the specified files. The descriptions currently include: file status (as per the stat system call); SHA-1 hash over the file contents; MIME type (as guessed by the file tool), geospatial metadata (as per GDAL), and GRIB file composition (as per GRIB API).
