NAME
       shasum - compute and check SHA1 message digest

SYNOPSIS
       sha1sum [OPTION] [FILE]...
       sha1sum [OPTION] --check [FILE]

DESCRIPTION
       Print or check SHA1 (160-bit) checksums.  With no FILE, or when FILE is
       -, read standard input.

       -b, --binary
              read files in binary mode (default on DOS/Windows)

       -c, --check
              check SHA1 sums against given list

       -t, --text
              read files in text mode (default)

   The following two options are useful only when verifying checksums:
       --status
              don't output anything, status code shows success

       -w, --warn
              warn about improperly formated checksum lines

       --help display this help and exit

       --version
              output version information and exit

       The sums are computed as described in FIPS-180-1.  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.
