About CRC RevEng

CRC RevEng is a portable, arbitrary-precision CRC calculator and algorithm finder. It calculates CRCs using any of the 83 preset algorithms, or a user-specified algorithm to any width. It calculates reversed CRCs to give the bit pattern that produces a desired forward CRC. CRC RevEng also reverse-engineers any CRC algorithm from sufficient correctly formatted message-CRC pairs and optional known parameters. It comprises powerful input interpretation options. Compliant with Ross Williams' Rocksoft™ model of parametrised CRC algorithms.

CRC RevEng was first released on 5 January 2011 at It is a port and expansion of a Perl script,, released in 2007. This SourceForge project was created on 28 May 2012.

CRC RevEng is released under the terms of the GNU General Public License, version 3 and later (GPLv3+).
