parrot_md5(1)

NAME

parrot_md5 - returns the MD5 checksum of a file, generated on the remote system if possible.

SYNOPSIS

parrot_md5 <path>

DESCRIPTION

parrot_md5 returns the MD5 checksum of the file stored at <path>. If possible it calls a native function of the remote system to get the checksum, without requiring the transfer of the file's contents to the user's machine. If the filesystem does not support the checksum function internally, it is computed by the user-level program in the normal fashion.

OPTIONS

parrot_md5 has no options.

EXIT STATUS

On success, returns zero. On failure, returns non-zero.

EXAMPLES

To retrieve the MD5 checksum of a file stored on a chirp server:
% parrot_run parrot_md5 /chirp/server.nd.edu/joe/data
