NAME

       bbdigest - calculate message digests

SYNOPSIS

       bbdigest md5|sha1|rmd160 [filename]

DESCRIPTION

       bbdigest(1)  is  a  utility  to calculate message digests for a file or
       document. It is used when defining HTTP- or FTP-based  content  checks,
       where  bbtest-net(1)  checks  that  a  URL returns a specific document;
       instead of having to compare the entire  document,  the  comparison  is
       done  against  a  pre-computed  message  digest  value  using  the MD5,
       RIPEMD160, SHA1 or any of the SHA2 (SHA-512, SHA-256, SHA-384, SHA-224)
       message digest algorithms.

       The  optional filename parameter is the input file whose message digest
       should be calculated; if no filename is given, the data  is  read  from
       standard input.

       bbdigest  outputs  a  string  containing  the  digest algorithm and the
       computed message digest. This is in a format suitable for  use  in  the
       bb-hosts(5) definition of a content check.

EXAMPLE

          $ bbdigest md5 index.html
          md5:88b81b110a85c83db56a939caa2e2cf6

          $ curl -s http://www.foo.com/ | bbdigest sha1
          sha1:e5c69784cb971680e2c7380138e04021a20a45a2
