       gt-fingerprint - Compute MD5 fingerprints for each sequence given in sequence_file(s).


       gt fingerprint [option ...] sequence_file [...]


           compare all fingerprints contained in the given checklist file with checksums in given
           sequence_files(s). The comparison is successful, if all fingerprints given in
           checkfile can be found in the sequence_file(s) in the exact same quantity and vice
           versa. (default: undefined)

           show duplicate fingerprints from given sequence_file(s). (default: no)

           extract the sequence(s) with the given fingerprint from sequence_file(s) and show them
           on stdout. (default: undefined)

           set output width for FASTA sequence printing (0 disables formatting) (default: 0)

           redirect output to specified file (default: undefined)

           write gzip compressed output file (default: no)

           write bzip2 compressed output file (default: no)

           force writing to output file (default: no)

           display help and exit

           display version information and exit


       If neither option -check nor option -duplicates is used, the fingerprints for all
       sequences are shown on stdout.


       Compute (unified) list of fingerprints:

           $ gt fingerprint U89959_ests.fas | sort | uniq > U89959_ests.checklist_uniq

       Compare fingerprints:

           $ gt fingerprint -check U89959_ests.checklist_uniq U89959_ests.fas
           950b7715ab6cc030a8c810a0dba2dd33 only in sequence_file(s)

       Make sure a sequence file contains no duplicates (not the case here):

           $ gt fingerprint -duplicates U89959_ests.fas
           950b7715ab6cc030a8c810a0dba2dd33        2
           gt fingerprint: error: duplicates found: 1 out of 200 (0.500%)

       Extract sequence with given fingerprint:

           $ gt fingerprint -extract 6d3b4b9db4531cda588528f2c69c0a57 U89959_ests.fas

       Return values:

           0  everything went fine (-check: the comparison was successful;
                                    -duplicates: no duplicates found)
           1  an error occured     (-check: the comparison was not successful;
                                    -duplicates: duplicates found)
