NAME
       mdsum - compute file digests using any supported	algorithms.

SYNOPSIS
       mdsum [options] [paths...]

DESCRIPTION
       This command computes a message digest for one or more specified	files.
       If no files are specified, then stdin can be used.   Any	 digest	 algo-
       rithm  available	in libusecure may be selected and used.	 Entire	direc-
       tory trees may also be examined and computed using the -R (--recursive)
       option.

OPTIONS
       --digest=name
	      Specify  name of digest algorithm.  By default md5 will be used,
	      unless the command is executed through a symlink	which  happens
	      to match an algorithm name.

       --follow
	      Dereference and follow symlinks.	Otherwise they are ignored.

       --recursive
	      If  argument  is a directory, recursively	scan directory and any
	      subdirectory contents as arguments.

       --help Outputs help screen for the user.
