PAR 2.0 compatible file verification and repair tool

 par2cmdline is a command line utility for creating and using PAR2 files

 In case files in a recovery set get damaged (e.g. while transmitted over
 a network or stored on a faulty disk) the program can read the damaged
 files and the (possibly damaged) PAR2 files, and regenerate the original
 input files.
