CRC 32-bit function

Posted on 2002-06-18
Last Modified: 2007-12-19
Can someone please help me translate the following function to C++?

  Crc32Table : array[0..255] of DWORD = (
  $00000000, $77073096, $ee0e612c, $990951ba, $076dc419, $706af48f, $e963a535.........)

 CRCByteArray = array[0..Pred(High(LongInt))] of Byte;

function Crc32Prim(var Data; DataSize : Cardinal; CurCrc : LongInt) : LongInt;
  { Calculates the 32-bit CRC of a block }
  I : Integer;
  Result := CurCrc;
  for I := 0 to (DataSize-1) do
    Result := Crc32Table[Byte(Result xor CRCByteArray(Data)[I])] xor
      DWord((Result shr 8) and $00FFFFFF);

I've tried the polynomial algorithm and I don't get the same results as the pascal function above. That is why I need a translation of the pascal CRC function.

I think a direct translation would be:

#include <stddef.h> // for size_t, could use int

long CrcTable[256] = {
  0x00000000, 0x77073096, 0xee0e612c, 0x990951ba,
  0x076dc419, 0x706af48f, 0xe963a535, // etc...

long CrC32Prim(unsigned char* data, size_t size, long CurCrc) {
   for(int i = 0; i < size; ++i){
      CurCrc = CrcTable[CurCrc ^ data[i]]
               ^ ((CurCrc >> 8) & 0x00FFFFFF);
   return CurCrc;

Thanks, it works great with a minor modification. Need to typecast:
CurCrc = CrcTable[ (BYTE) CurCrc ^ data[i]]
              ^ ((CurCrc >> 8) & 0x00FFFFFF);

here is the working function and the CRC table:

long CRC32Prim(unsigned char* data, size_t size, long CurCrc) {

  for(int i = 0; i < size; ++i){
     CurCrc = CrcTable[(BYTE) CurCrc ^ data[i]]
              ^ ((CurCrc >> 8) & 0x00FFFFFF);
  return CurCrc;

long CrcTable[256] = {
  0x00000000, 0x77073096, 0xee0e612c, 0x990951ba, 0x076dc419, 0x706af48f, 0xe963a535,
