Build md5deep to calculate checksums
Authored by: bluehz on Sep 06, '05 04:57:02PM

It is similar to the standard md5 tools with some extras - the biggest difference is it allows you to recursively checksum a dir or package - the same way md5sum does for linux/unix. It also offers 4 other checksum methods other than md5 - sha1 (standard os x), sha256, tiger, and whirpool. The differences are subtle - but if you use checksums a lot you will definitely benefit from md5deep package.
