NAME
       md5sum -	compute	and check MD5 message digest

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

DESCRIPTION
       Print  or check MD5 (128-bit) 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:
       --status
	      don't output anything, status code shows success

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

       --help display this help	and exit

       --version
	      output version information and exit

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