Icon checkSum+ 1.5.3

Check or create SFV files.
checkSum+ will handle md5, sfv & cvs files (please, do not confuse with cvs files, since these can be any kind of database file). These files store "checksum" information about files, and will allow this and other applications know if the related files are or not corrupted. You will often find these files in USENET newsgroups and other places, where there is a risk of data loss. So, the original distributor of some files, usually *large* files, will create and also distribute some of these files, so the final recipient of such files can check for the integrity of these. This is very useful, eg, for multi-segment files. When you attempt to join them, if one of them is corrupted, the attempt will simply fail, and you won't know what segment is corrupted. But using these files (md5, sfv or cvs), you can know what is the bad file, and re-download it again, instead of re-downloading all the stuff.

Icon MacPAR deLuxe 5.1.1

MacPAR deLuxe is a utility program that runs on the Apple Macintosh. It is useful to you if you download (or upload) binary files from internet newsgroups (a.k.a. "Usenet").
Often, binary content comes in the form of sets of many files that together form a "rar" archive. MacPAR deLuxe assist you in combining these files after the download finishes.
- It verifies that the file set is complete, and all files are undamaged. MacPAR deLuxe can recover missing information by processing so called "par" and "par2" files.
- After the verification step, MacPAR deLuxe unpacks the data. If possible with its built-in unrar engine, or otherwise by launching the appropriate program.

icon Rarify 0.8.1

1. What is this
This is a very simple interface to the rar binary. And RAR is a popular compression format in the PC-side-of-the-life. Keep in mind that the RAR format won't support OSX-specific flags (ie, resource fork). For advanced options, use the rar binary in CLI mode itself, or look for other interfaces.
2. Usage
Use the Preferences window to adjust some settings (password if needed, segments if needed, etc.) and then drop onto Rarify's icon your file(s)/folder(s) in order to compress them.
3. Requirements & Installation
Rarify will run under OS X 10.4 and 10.5, both Intel and PPC architectures.
1. Drop Rarify onto your favorite location.
Due to licensing issues, I prefer you install the rar binary manually yourself (so you can read its readme, read its license, purchase a copy or whatever you wish).
2. Install if needed the rar binary. To do so:
-Go to http://www.rarlabs.com/ downloads section.
-Choose your favorite download (usually, the newer version of the rar binary for OS X) and download it.
-Unpack.
-Make a new Finder window ("Apple + N"). Type "Apple + Shift + G". Type "/usr/local/bin".
-Now, copy the unpacked "rar" binary file onto the "/usr/local/bin" window. Authenticate as administrator if needed.
If you prefer not doing such a thing (!), you can copy as well the rar binary to the following destination (instead of "/usr/bin" or "/usr/local/bin"):
-Rarify/Contents/Resources..
3. You can instead use the "Update RAR binary..." menu item under the application menu and these steps will be done automagically by Rarify.
