The generator constant in the code sample has a "1" that is

CRC polynomials are usually written without the leading term. 
Whether the  
constant in the code has the term is an implementation detail 
--- for  
example, if the CRC width is the same as the word width (e.g. 
a CRC-32), it's  
easier and faster not to write it that way.

I'd recommend> crc_v3.txt as  

an introduction to theoretical and practical 
aspects of CRCs.
