Summary0000214: Automatically look for and check md5 checksum files at load
DescriptionAs per the title!

For a given file ending in .s19 or .S19 look for, and if available use, a file with the same name, but .md5 or .MD5 suffix. Compute the md5sum of the s19 file, as a whole, and check it against the contents of the .md5 file.

Each S19 record(line) has it's own check sum but I do like the idea and will implement it. Maybe some day we will pack more than firmware in a loadable file :)

This is a security measure too, as it prevents tampering provided that the checksum file is obtained independently. Eg build from source at fixed commit and compare against md5 downloaded from email or website. Plus, md5 is STRONG and the simple checksum in the S19 is weak as piss.
