NAME

digest -- calculate message digests

SYNOPSIS

digest algorithm [file ...]

DESCRIPTION

The digest utility calculates message digests of files or, if no file is specified, standard input. The list of possible algorithms is: md5 the md5(3) algorithm will be used. rmd160 the rmd160(3) algorithm will be used. sha1 the sha1(3) algorithm will be used. sha256 the sha256 algorithm will be used. sha384 the sha384 algorithm will be used. sha512 the sha512 algorithm will be used. tiger the tiger algorithm will be used. whirlpool the whirlpool algorithm will be used. The digest utility is a simple wrapper for the various different algo- rithm implementations, which are located in the standard C library, and was designed to be scalable as new message digest algorithms are devel- oped. The digest utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
