I take input from user and calculate CRC32 for it, now I have the CRC32 for the input string, how to check if it is correct, in other words, how to decode back from CRC, any code will be appreciated
HERE is my code:
Data = input(prompt,'s'); %Taking input from the user
crc = uint32(hex2dec('FFFFFFFF')); %Initalize CRC with all 32 bits (1's)
poly = uint32(hex2dec('EDB88320')); %Standard Polynomial of CRC32 in hex converted to decimals then to unsigned int32
data = uint8(Data); %Every char of input data is considered as one byte = 8 bits, and is converted to unisigned int8
% **** Computing CRC-32 value ****
for i = 1:length(data)
crc = bitxor(crc,uint32(data(i))); % type casting data to unisigned int32 inorder to be same as crc initial value type, then performing bitwise xor operations.
for j = 1:8 % Computing CRC on byte by byte basis (as required)
mask = bitcmp(bitand(crc,uint32(1))); %After performing bit wise AND operation, we take bit complement which is nothing but itself subtracted from the maximum integer of its data type
if mask == intmax('uint32'), mask = 0; %If value of mask even after taking complement is equal to maximum number of unit32 data type, we take its value as zero
end
end
end
crc_in_dec = bitcmp(crc);
crc = dec2bin(crc);

Could you link to that 2014 post by Costas Vlachos ?
