viewing a file's crc code

hey,
when you download a series from a group that does not provide verifying files and instead includes a file's crc in the filename itself then where do i see the crc in order to manually verify the file?
as of now, i've always created an sfv file with quicksfv and then opened that with wordpad to see if the crc codes were identical.
however, i've changed to quickpar because it's just better in my opinion. in conclusion, i can't get to see the crc with my old way anymore and i don't want to install quicksfv just for that. how do you do it?

May I direct your attention to this post of mine? It answers your question. Note however that using a crc checker with BT is completely redundant because your BT client checks the integrity of the file on its own.

You can still find my Azureus Download Guide here

By all means, make sure to read this.

true, you won't ever get a bad file if you downloaded it via torrent.
but you know, torrent isn't the only source to get anime.

thanks for the tip. seems it won't be possible to avoid extra software. oh well.

It's just an exe file, no need to install it, so it's not really that bothersome, is it?

in case you dont want do download extra software: Just use your mIRC

Go into a status window and type:

"//echo $crc(filename)" for example "//echo $crc(C:\test.avi)"

didn't work
just brought up a white "$crc(c:\test.avi)"

anyway, i've thought it over and sometimes i need a listing of the crc codes of several files i highlighted so i guess quicksfv is inevitable.
thanks for all the help though.
