Calculate message digests of files or standard input
Calculate a cryptohash on a file or standard input.
digest algorithm [file] …
The digest utility calculates message digests of files or, if no file is specified, standard input. The set of supported digests depends on the current Python interpreter and the version of OpenSSL present on the system. However, at a minimum, digest supports the following algorithms:
Argument Algorithm md5 The MD5 algorithm sha1 The SHA-1 algorithm sha224 The SHA-224 algorithm sha256 The SHA-256 algorithm sha384 The SHA-384 algorithm sha512 The SHA-512 algorithm
This program is modeled on the digest program found in BSD Un*x systems and written by Alistair G. Crooks. This Python version is an independently implemented program based on the manual page and output from the BSD digest program.
