CDF_SET_MD5CHECKSUM

CDF_SET_MD5CHECKSUM

The CDF_SET_MD5CHECKSUM procedure calculates and inserts a MD5 checksum into a CDF file. If you use the /REMOVE keyword, a previously-inserted checksum is removed from the file.

By default, the checksums are not inserted into new files. Once the checksum is inserted into a particular file, a data integrity check of the file is performed every time it is opened. A new checksum is computed and stored when the file is closed. The overhead for this operation may be noticeable for large files. You may wish to remove the checksum once the integrity of the file has been verified.
