MD5SUM(1)							     MD5SUM(1)

       md5sum - compute and check MD5 message digest

       md5sum	[-bhtvV]  [-c  file]  [-s[string]]  [--binary]	[--check=file]
       [--help] [--string[=string]] [--text] [--verbose] [--version] [file...]

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

       This manual page documents the GNU version of md5sum.  md5sum  produces
       for  each  input file a 128-bit "fingerprint" or "message-digest" or it
       can check with the output of a former run whether the  message  digests
       are still the same (i.e. whether the files changed).

       -b, --binary
	      Treat  all  input	 files as binary.  This normally does not make
	      any difference on UN*X systems but some systems have a different
	      internal	and  external  representation of texts (especially the
	      end-of-line characters).

       -c, --check=file
	      file should be the output of a former run of md5sum.   The  file
	      has  in  each  line  the MD5 sum, a binary/text flag, and a file
	      name.  This file will be opened  (with  each  possible  relative
	      path) and the message digest is computed.	 If it is not the same
	      as given in this line it will be marked as failed.

       -h --help
	      Print a usage message and exit.

       -s, --string=string
	      Instead of computing the message digest for a  file  compute  it
	      for the given string.  The result is the same as for a file with
	      contains exactly this string.

       -t, --text
	      Treat all input files as text files.  This is the reverse option
	      to --binary.

       -v, --verbose
	      Verbosely write information about the process.

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