- Calculate the SHA512 checksum for a file:sha512sum [filename1]- Calculate SHA512 checksums for multiple files:sha512sum [filename1] [filename2]- Read a file of SHA512 sums and verify all files have matching checksums:sha512sum -c [filename.sha512]
sha512sum [,OPTION/]... [,FILE/]...
Print or check SHA512 (512-bit) checksums.
With no FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard input.
The sums are computed as described in FIPS-180-2. 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.
