This isn't so much a something is wrong with HxD post.

I know there are multiple implementaions of CRC algorithm, but what is the default CRC16 used by HxD? I'm trying to write a test file generator to test a library I'm using. It uses CRC16 to verify inputs, and the version of CRC16 used by HxD seems to be the same used by this library. Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi,

It is CRC-16-IBM described here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyclic_redundancy_check

There are probably open source software packages that implement that code if you search for that name or the aliases given in the table.
