Use PAR files to reconstruct missing parts of multi-part archives
This utility applies the data-recovery capability concepts of RAID-like
systems to the posting and downloading of multi-part archives on USENET by
providing the ability to create and use redundant recovery records. It
supports the 'Reed-Soloman Code' implementation that allows for recovery of
any 'X' volumes for 'X' parity volumes present. It is popularly used on
USENET postings, but is not limited to this use.
The Debian parchive package supports "legacy" version 1.0 PAR files.
The Debian par2 package supports version 2.0 PAR files.
