NAME

       md5sum - compute and check MD5 message digest

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

       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

       --tag  create a BSD-style checksum

       -t, --text
              read in text mode (default)

       -z, --zero
              end each output line with NUL, not newline, and disable file name escaping

   The following five options are useful only when verifying checksums:
       --ignore-missing
              don't fail or report status for missing files

       --quiet
              don't print OK for each successfully verified file

       --status
              don't output anything, status code shows success

       --strict
              exit non-zero for improperly formatted checksum lines

       -w, --warn
              warn about improperly formatted 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 input should be a
       former output of this program.  The default mode is to  print  a  line  with  checksum,  a
       space,  a character indicating input mode ('*' for binary, ' ' for text or where binary is
       insignificant), and name for each FILE.

BUGS

       Do not use the MD5 algorithm  for  security  related  purposes.   Instead,  use  an  SHA-2
       algorithm,   implemented   in   the  programs  sha224sum(1),  sha256sum(1),  sha384sum(1),
       sha512sum(1), or the BLAKE2 algorithm, implemented in b2sum(1)
