Included is the fastest CRC32 implementation ever written for Visual Basic 6. The entire algorithm is written in x86 assembly language (nasm), thus allowing me complete control and of course speed. Included in the project is a timing class and another CRC32 method posted by me which uses asm assisted bitshifting to achieve better speed.
This CRC32 algorithm runs 25X to 100X FASTER THAN ANYTHING ELSE OUT THERE FOR VB6!!! Feel free to download and test/benchmark and see for yourself!
Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come
out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner
If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

By the way guys, look forward to more hashing algorithms, encryption algorithms, and the like from me in the future writtenin x86 assembly taylored for use in vb6! (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
You can calculate file contents easily. All you have to do is read the file and convert the buffer containing the contents into a string (if its not already) and then call the hashing function. (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
