NAME
       cksum - checksum and count the bytes in a file

SYNOPSIS
       cksum [--help] [--version] [file...]

DESCRIPTION
       This  documentation is no longer being maintained and may be inaccurate
       or incomplete.  The Texinfo  documentation  is  now  the	 authoritative
       source.

       This  manual page documents the GNU version of cksum.  cksum computes a
       cyclic redundancy check (CRC) for each  named  file,  or	 the  standard
       input  if  none are given or when a file named `-' is given.  It prints
       the CRC for each file along with the number of bytes in the  file,  and
       the file name unless no arguments were given.

       cksum  is  typically used to make sure that files have been transferred
       by unreliable means (such as netnews) have not been corrupted, by  com‐
       paring  the  cksum  output for the received files with the cksum output
       for the original files.	The CRC algorithm is specified by the  POSIX.2
       standard.   It is not compatible with the BSD or System V sum programs;
       it is more robust.

       --help Print a usage message and exit with  a  status  code  indicating
	      success.

       --version
	      Print version information on standard output then exit.
