NAME

b2sum − compute and check BLAKE2 message digest

SYNOPSIS

b2sum [OPTION]... [FILE]...

DESCRIPTION

Print or check BLAKE2b (512−bit) checksums.

With no FILE, or when FILE is −, read standard input.

Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.
−b
, −−binary

read in binary mode

−c, −−check

read checksums from the FILEs and check them

−l, −−length=BITS

digest length in bits; must not exceed the max for the blake2 algorithm and must be a multiple of 8

−−tag

create a BSD−style checksum

−t, −−text

read in text mode (default)

−z, −−zero

end each output line with NUL, not newline, and disable file name escaping

The following five options are useful only when verifying checksums:
−−ignore−missing

don’t fail or report status for missing files

−−quiet

don’t print OK for each successfully verified file

−−status

don’t output anything, status code shows success

−−strict

exit non−zero for improperly formatted checksum lines

−w, −−warn

warn about improperly formatted checksum lines

−−help

display this help and exit

−−version

output version information and exit

The sums are computed as described in RFC 7693. When checking, the input should be a former output of this program. The default mode is to print a line with: checksum, a space, a character indicating input mode (’*’ for binary, ’ ’ for text or where binary is insignificant), and name for each FILE.

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