md5sum [OPTION] [FILE]...

don’t output anything, status code shows success
The sums are computed as described in RFC 1321. 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 type (’*’ for binary, ‘ ‘ for text), and name for each FILE.
