[Mono-list] Using dataconverter.cs to calculate file checksum...?

I'm trying to convert a perl script to C# and hoping to use the
dataconverter functionality to re-create the code below which calculates a
checksum based on the content of a tar file.  Can anyone show me how this
can be done?   All help appreciated!


In Perl this checksum is calculated using the unpack function:
while (<PACKAGE>) {
 $checksum += unpack("%32C*", $_);
    $checksum %= 32767;
where PACKAGE is the .tar file input stream
