       sha3sum - Print or Check	SHA-3 Checksums

	Usage: sha3sum [OPTION]... [FILE]...
	Print or check SHA-3 checksums.
	With no	FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard input.

	  -a, --algorithm   224	(default), 256,	384, 512, 128000, 256000
	  -b, --binary	    read in binary mode
	  -c, --check	    read SHA-3 sums from the FILEs and check them
	  -t, --text	    read in text mode (default)
	  -U, --UNIVERSAL   read in Universal Newlines mode
				produces same digest on	Windows/Unix/Mac
	  -0, --01	    read in BITS mode
				ASCII '0' interpreted as 0-bit,
				ASCII '1' interpreted as 1-bit,
				all other characters ignored
	  -p, --portable    read in portable mode (to be deprecated)

	The following two options are useful only when verifying checksums:
	  -s, --status	    don't output anything, status code shows success
	  -w, --warn	    warn about improperly formatted checksum lines

	  -h, --help	    display this help and exit
	  -v, --version	    output version information and exit

	The sums are computed as described in the FIPS 202 SHA-3 submission.
	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, `U' for UNIVERSAL,
	`^' for	BITS, `?' for portable), and name for each FILE.

       Running sha3sum is often	the quickest way to compute SHA-3 message
       digests.	 The user simply feeds data to the script through files	or
       standard	input, and then	collects the results from standard output.

       The following command shows how to compute digests for typical inputs
       such as the NIST	test vector "abc":

	       perl -e "print qq(abc)" | sha3sum

       Or, if you want to use SHA3-256 instead of the default SHA3-224,	simply

	       perl -e "print qq(abc)" | sha3sum -a 256

       Unlike many other digest	computation programs, sha3sum implements the
       full SHA-3 standard by allowing partial-byte inputs, which can be
       recognized through the BITS option (-0).	 The following example
       computes	the SHA3-384 digest of the 7-bit message 0001100:

	       perl -e "print qq(0001100)" | sha3sum -0	-a 384

       sha3sum is implemented using the	Perl module Digest::SHA3.
