maintain database script...

Hi there. i'm new user at here

I need help for this. I need to write a script that maintains a database of cryptographic checksums. In other words, I need this script to check the files checksum whether the files has been modified or not. But i got no idea where to start. Hope anyone here can guide me or provide an example related to my question. thanks Smilie

So you want to baseline a set of files with a checksum and track changes to those files by checking against the checksums stored in the database?

Look at Afick and AIDE for examples to get you going.

no..i mean write a bourne shell script that can store checksums of file into flat file.then can match the file's checksum with the checksum stored in flat file

Conceptually, those two tools are accomplishing exactly what you described in your OP. So using those as examples, you should be able to adapt to a shell script.

That's why I say adapt for shell. You are trying to accomplish the same end goal.

In your OP you asked for a place to start. That's where to start.

It sounds like you are waiting for someone to begin writing a script for you.
