in reply to [OT]:Faster signature algorithm than md5?

Thanks everybody. I hadn't even thought to check file size before comparing file before comparing md5 signatures, nor had I thought to take a checksum of a good-sized chunk file as a second screen.

A big "thank you!" to all of you.

[Discipulus]: i have a different opinion: automation is always worth: first i can use Perl (and this is good), then later you can reuse parts to automate others tasks. My $boss everytime say:'how much time you spend doing this?' So generally i present a perl solution
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yes, but the chart gives some limits on whether it's really worth spending time for saving your time. If you gain enjoyment, automating is still great, but it doesn't save time ;)
[Discipulus]: Corion are you would able to realize such thing? O_O
[Corion]: In the same vein I have a script that automates Firefox to enter some data into another system. It's not faster than the people using the script if they were to do it manually, but they prefer not having to check the data and not having typos when ...
[Corion]: ... entering the data
[Corion]: Discipulus: I don't know whether I could really do that, but the init process itself mostly launches other processes, and the whole startup is just following a path of dependencies and making sure they are all running. Which basically is what ...
[Discipulus]: when at work my time is (temporarly) owned by the firm, so i do not care (coworkers whatch movies.. I code Perl)
[Corion]: ... make already does, except for files instead of programs. But maybe with some /proc hackery, that could be eliminated and one could use plain make :-D
[choroba]: systemd just makes is asynchronous
[choroba]: so, make -j
