 Description: Recursive piecewise hashing tool
  Recursive computing and matching of Context Triggered Piecewise Hashing (aka
  Fuzzy Hashing).
+ .
+ Fuzzy hashing is a method for comparing similar but not identical files.
+ This tool can be used to compare files like regular hashing does (like
+ md5sum or sha1sum) but it will find similar files with little differences.
+ .
+ For esxample, it can be used to identify modified versions of known files
+ even if data has been inserted, modified, or deleted in the new files.
