Parity Archive Volume Set, for checking and repair of files
A command line implementation of the PAR v2.0 specification. This specification is used for parity checking and repair of a file set. If the files in the recovery set ever get damaged (e.g. when they are transmitted or stored on a faulty disk) the client can read the damaged input files, read the (possibly damaged) PAR files, and regenerate the original input files. Of course, not all damages can be repaired, but many can.
