NAME
shasum - Print or Check SHA Checksums

SYNOPSIS
Usage: shasum [OPTION]... [FILE]...
Print or check SHA checksums.
With no FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard input.

-a, --algorithm 1 (default), 224, 256, 384, 512, 512224, 512256
-b, --binary read in binary mode
-c, --check read SHA sums from the FILEs and check them
-p, --portable read files in portable mode
produces same digest on Windows/Unix/Mac
-t, --text read in text mode (default)

The following two options are useful only when verifying checksums:
-s, --status don't output anything, status code shows success
-w, --warn warn about improperly formatted checksum lines

-h, --help display this help and exit
-v, --version output version information and exit

When verifying SHA-512/224 or SHA-512/256 checksums, indicate the
algorithm explicitly using the -a option, e.g.

shasum -a 512224 -c checksumfile

The sums are computed as described in FIPS-180-4. When checking, the
input should be a former output of this program. The default mode is to
print a line with checksum, a character indicating type (`*' for binary,
` ' for text, `?' for portable), and name for each FILE.

DESCRIPTION
Running shasum is often the quickest way to compute SHA message
digests. The user simply feeds data to the script through files or
standard input, and then collects the results from standard output.

The following command shows how easy it is to compute digests for
typical inputs such as the NIST test vector "abc":

perl -e "print qq(abc)" | shasum

Or, if you want to use SHA-256 instead of the default SHA-1, simply
say:

perl -e "print qq(abc)" | shasum -a 256

Since shasum mimics the behavior of the combined GNU sha1sum,
sha224sum, sha256sum, sha384sum, and sha512sum programs, you can
install this script as a convenient drop-in replacement.
