    In the 'Calculate Hashes\File' screen, there are 2 lines in a 'Compare' section; 1 for hash and 1 for file. I was hoping it would allow me to enter the hash of the file I'm interested in and it would tell me if the entered hash was the hash value of the file, so I don't have to visually compare a computed hash with a provided hash. However there doesn't seem to be any way to make anything happen. You can calculate hashes in the pane below the 'Compare' pane, but 'Compare' doesn't seem to do anything.

     
    • You can see an example here: http://fsumfe.sourceforge.net/images/screen1.png

      You enter the hash and calculate the hash(es) of the files.
      If one hash calculated is the same than the one you entered, the color is different (cyan).

      Colors:
      - green: the hash is found in the file name.
      - cyan: the hash is the same as the one you entered in the compare box.
      - blue: the hash is the same as the file you entered in the compare box (in the screenshoot, p001.gif and p002.gif have the same CRC32).

      When compared in 'Compare' section, the file name contains a space, then pops up an error:
      The file m:\tmp\0012.mp3 does not exists
      (but now the name of the file "00 1  02.mp3")

      Thank You for a good program!

      Sorry for bad English.
