ssdeep - Computes a checksum based on context triggered piecewise hashes

License: GPL
Computes a checksum based on context triggered piecewise hashes for
each input file. If requested, the program matches those checksums
against a file of known checksums and reports any possible matches.
Output is written to standard out and errors to standard error.
Input from standard input is not supported.
