MD5SUM(1)                                                        User Commands                                                       MD5SUM(1)

NAME

       md5sum - compute and check MD5 message digest

SYNOPSIS

       md5sum [OPTION]... [FILE]...

DESCRIPTION

       Print or check MD5 (128-bit) checksums.  With no FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard input.

       -b, --binary
              read in binary mode

       -c, --check
              read MD5 sums from the FILEs and check them

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

   The following three options are useful only when verifying checksums:
       --quiet
              don't print OK for each successfully verified file

       --status
              don't output anything, status code shows success

       -w, --warn
              warn about improperly formatted checksum lines

       --strict
              with --check, exit non-zero for any invalid input

       --help display this help and exit

       --version
              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.

BUGS

       The MD5 algorithm should not be used any more for security related purposes.  Instead, better use an SHA-2  algorithm,  implemented  in
       the programs sha224sum(1), sha256sum(1), sha384sum(1), sha512sum(1)
