Subj: CRC16                          Conf: (2) Quik_Bas
 Someone requested code for 16 bit CRC not long ago. Some code
 was posted in response, but I thought I would post mine too. This
 routine should be much faster than the code posted previously, and
 if speed is critical, this can be made to run even faster with
 just a bit of ASM code. If some one requests it, I will post that.
 Also note that the previously posted code returns the CRC in a
 long integer, my routine returns an integer.

 FUNCTION CRC16% (Target$)
