NAME

     mdigest - calculate a message digest


SYNOPSIS

     mdigest -a algorithm [ options ] [ file1 ... filen ]


DESCRIPTION

     mdigest reads the files from the argument list and  computes
     a message digest hash for the file content.  If the argument
     list is empty mdigest reads from standard in.


OPTIONS

     All options can be abbreviated by their first letter.

     -a algorithm
          Specified the message digest hash algorithm to use.

     -l   Lists the available  message  digest  hash  algorithms.
          This  list  may depend on the platform and the compiler
          that was used to create the binary.

     -help
          Prints a short summary of the  mdigest(1)  options  and
          exists.

     -verbose
          Verbose output. Includes the message digest hash  algo-
          rithm name in the output.

     -version
          Prints the mdigest(1) version number string and exists.
