Compute, compare, or audit multiple message digests
Computation mode. Compute hashes of FILES using the algorithms specified. Legal values are md5,
sha1, sha256, tiger, and whirlpool.
Enables expert mode. Allows the user specify which (and only which) types of files are processed.
Directory processing is still controlled with the -r flag. The expert mode options allowed are:
f - Regular files
b - Block Devices
c - Character Devices
p - Named Pipes
l - Symbolic Links
s - Sockets
d - Solaris Doors
-r Enables recursive mode. All subdirectories are traversed. Please note that recursive mode cannot
be used to examine all files of a given file extension. For example, calling hashdeep -r *.txt
will examine all files in directories that end in .txt.
-l Enables relative file paths. Instead of printing the absolute path for each file, displays the
relative file path as indicated on the command line. This flag may not be used in conjunction with
the -b flag.
