SUM(1)                                                     SUM(1)

          sum, md5sum, sha1sum - sum and count blocks in a file

          sum [ -5r ] [ file ... ]

          md5sum [ file ... ]

          sha1sum [ -2 bits ] [ file ... ]

          By default, sum calculates and prints a 32-bit hexadecimal
          checksum, a byte count, and the name of each file. The
          checksum is also a function of the input length.  If no
          files are given, the standard input is summed.  Other sum-
          ming algorithms are available.  The options are

          -r  Sum with the algorithm of System V's sum -r and print
              the length (in 1K blocks) of the input.

          -5  Sum with System V's default algorithm and print the
              length (in 512-byte blocks) of the input.

          Sum is typically used to look for bad spots, to validate a
          file communicated over some transmission line or as a quick
          way to determine if two files on different machines might be
          the same.

          Md5sum computes the 32 hex digit RSA Data Security, Inc. MD5
          Message-Digest Algorithm described in RFC1321.

          Sha1sum computes the 40 hex digit National Institute of
          Standards and Technology (NIST) SHA1 secure hash algorithm
          described in FIPS PUB 180-1, by default.  Given the `2'
          option, it instead computes the bits-bit NIST SHA2 secure
          hash algorithm described in FIPS PUB 180-2 and prints the
          hash in hex.  Currently supported values of bits are 224,
          256, 384, and 512.
