NAME
sha512sum - compute and check SHA512 message digest SYNOPSIS
sha512sum [OPTION]... [FILE]... DESCRIPTION
Print or check SHA512 (512-bit) checksums. With no FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard input. -b, --binary read in binary mode -c, --check read SHA512 sums from the FILEs and check them --tag create a BSD-style checksum -t, --text read in text mode (default) Note: There is no difference between binary and text mode option on GNU system. The following four options are useful only when verifying checksums: --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 FIPS-180-2. 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 input mode ('*' for binary, space for text), and name for each FILE.
