Translate C code to VB

Can someone translate this to VB?

Example code written in C
FILE * filefd;
int nVal;
char buf[5];
int nCksum = 0;
filefd=fopen("BATCH-FILE","r+");
if (filefd==NULL)
{
perror("Error opening file");
}
else
{
while ((nVal = fgetc(filefd)) != EOF)                    
{                            
      if (nVal != 10 && nVal != 13)
      {                          
nCksum =(((nCksum&1)<<15)+(nCksum>>1)+nVal)&0xffff;
            }
}
sprintf(buf,"%05d",nCksum);
fwrite(buf,1,sizeof(buf),filefd);
}

Here's the psuedo code.

Checksum Algorithm
NOTE: The checksum should be appended to the File Trailer Record after the checksum for the file has been calculated.
Starting at the beginning of the file and given the variables nCksum, cVar, and nVal, the following pseudo code shows how to calculate the checksum of a file (linefeeds and carriage returns are ignored):

nCksum = zero
While Not End of File
{
      cVar = next character in file
      
      
      If cVar != Linefeed And cVar != Carriage Return
      nVal = ASCII value of cVar
            nCksum = ((nCksum%2)*(2^15)+(nCksum/2)+nVal)%65536
      Endif

}
Append nCksum to file

Hi,
This function should do the needful.

Sub temp()
Dim Cksum As Integer, filenum As Integer
Dim var As String
Cksum = 0
filenum = FreeFile()
Open "BATCH-FILE" For Input As filenum
While Not EOF(filenum)
    Get filenum, , var
    If var <> vbCr And var <> vbLf Then
        Cksum = ((Cksum Mod 2) * (2 ^ 15) + (Cksum / 2) + Val(var)) Mod 65536
    End If
Wend
Close filenum
Open "C:\emp.txt" For Append As #1
Put 1, , Cksum
Close filenum
End Sub

In case there are any issues then u fix them. Atleast u have got a start now.
Regards,
VBS
