whirlpoolsum — compute and check WHIRLPOOL message digest

Synopsis

whirlpoolsum [OPTION]... [FILE]...

Description

Print or check WHIRLPOOL (512-bit) checksums. With no FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard input.

-b, --binary
read in binary mode
-c, --check
read WHIRLPOOL sums from the FILEs and check them
--tag
create a BSD-style checksum, always in binary mode
-t, --text

read in text mode (default)

Note: There is no difference between binary and text mode option on GNU system.

The following three options are useful only when verifying checksums

--quiet
don't print OK for each successfully verified file
--status
don't output anything, status code shows success
-w, --warn
warn about improperly formatted checksum lines
--strict
with --check, exit non-zero for any invalid input
--test
invoke Whirlpool API test function and exit
--help
display this help and exit
--version
output version information and exit

The sums are computed as described in the official WHIRLPOOL specs. 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 input mode ('*' for binary, space for text), and name for each FILE.
