    3 * We used "Screaming Fast Galois Field Arithmetic Using Intel
    4   SIMD Instructions" paper by James S. Plank, Kevin M. Greenan
    5   and Ethan L. Miller to improve Reed-Solomon coding performance.
    6   Also we are grateful to Artem Drobanov and Bulat Ziganshin
    7   for samples and ideas allowed to make Reed-Solomon coding
    8   more efficient.

   10 * RAR4 text compression algorithm is based on Dmitry Shkarin PPMII
   11   and Dmitry Subbotin carryless rangecoder public domain source code.
   12   You can find it in ftp.elf.stuba.sk/pub/pc/pack.
   13 
   14 * RAR encryption includes parts of public domain code
   15   from Szymon Stefanek AES and Steve Reid SHA-1 implementations.
   16 
   17 * With exception of SFX modules, RAR uses CRC32 function based
   18   on Intel Slicing-by-8 algorithm. Original Intel Slicing-by-8 code
   19   is available here:

   54 * RAR archives may optionally include BLAKE2sp hash ( https://blake2.net ),
   55   designed by Jean-Philippe Aumasson, Samuel Neves, Zooko Wilcox-O'Hearn
   56   and Christian Winnerlein.
   57 
   58 * Useful hints provided by Alexander Khoroshev and Bulat Ziganshin allowed
   59   to significantly improve RAR compression and speed.
