       md5sum - compute and check MD5 message digest

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

       Print  or  check  MD5 (128-bit) checksums.  With no FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard

       -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)

	      Note: There is no difference between binary and text mode option on GNU system.

   The following four options are useful only when verifying checksums:
	      don't print OK for each successfully verified file

	      don't output anything, status code shows success

	      exit non-zero for improperly formatted checksum lines

       -w, --warn
	      warn about improperly formatted checksum lines

       --help display this help and exit

	      output version information and exit

       The sums are computed as described in RFC 1321.	When checking, the input should be a for-
       mer  output of this program.  The default mode is to print a line with checksum, a charac-
       ter indicating input mode ('*' for binary, space for text), and name for each FILE.

       The  MD5  algorithm  should  not be used any more for security related purposes.  Instead,
       better use an SHA-2 algorithm, implemented in  the  programs  sha224sum(1),  sha256sum(1),
       sha384sum(1), sha512sum(1)
