Compatibility with linux md5sum files

User Image
1 discussion post
I use both Windows and linux. Linux has a great command called md5sum that creates MD5 sums and verifies files against the MD5. There is an incompatibility between the md5sum file and the HashTools file. For example, in linux run these commands:

$ echo test > test.txt
$ md5sum test.txt > test.txt.md5
$ cat test.txt.md5
d8e8fca2dc0f896fd7cb4cb0031ba249 test.txt

In the md5sum output, the filename is appended to the actual MD5 digest. Can you make Hashtools accept files formatted like this?

Thanks for letting us know about this! I've added it to our list to fix up, and we'll be sure to let you know if/when we're able to get it sorted out :)

Just wanted to follow up and let you know we've released a new version of HashTools that supports this.
