`md5sum -c`
Authored by: lullabud on Nov 28, '05 10:00:39AM
Using the tool `md5sum`, which is installable via fink and likely other methods, you can compare against the output of a previous md5sum list. For example:
md5sum * > checksums
cp * /tmp/
cd /tmp
md5sum -c checksums
This will return nothing if the files were copied correctly, and will return a message indicating a failure if there are any.
