Please look at
http://www.cis.ohio-state.edu/hypertext/information/rfc.html
There are different RFCs about all the protocols,
so U can easily find the UDP specification and to implement it.

The UDP checksum is "the 16-bit one's complement of the one's
complement sum of a pseudo header of information from the IP
header, the UDP header, and the data, padded with zero octets at
the end (if necessary) to make a multiple of two octets."
as defined in http://www.internic.net/std/std6.txt .
Below is an implementation. If you have problems with line breaks
(since Experts-Exchange allows only 62 chars in a line), I can
mail you the file.
