MD5SUM(1)                        User Commands                       MD5SUM(1)

       md5sum - compute and check MD5 message digest

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

       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)

              Note: There is no difference between binary and text mode option on GNU system.

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

              don't output anything, status code shows success

       -w, --warn
              warn about improperly formatted 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.
