NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       md5sum - compute and check MD5 message digest

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       md5sum [OPTION] [FILE]...
       md5sum [OPTION] --check [FILE]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       Print  or  check  MD5 checksums.  With no FILE, or when FILE is -, read
       standard input.

       -b, --binary
	      read files in binary mode (default on DOS/Windows)

       -c, --check
	      check MD5 sums against given list

       -t, --text
	      read files in text mode (default)

   The following two options are useful only when verifying checksums:
	      don't output anything, status code shows success

       -w, --warn
	      warn about improperly formated MD5 checksum lines

       --help display this help and exit

	      output version information and exit

       The sums are computed as described in RFC  1321.   When	checking,  the
       input  should  be a former output of this program.  The default mode is
       to print a line with checksum, a character  indicating  type  (`*'  for
       binary, ` ' for text), and name for each FILE.
