Subject Re: how to use hashes on c.a.o?
Date Thu, 24 Oct 2013 07:53:14 GMT
But how does one validate it?  I just wrote a dumb script to
concatenation, remove whitespace, lowercase and then pass to
"sha512sum -c."  I've never seen anyone provide SHAs in that format.
I wouldn't expect many people to know how to use them.  Why can't we
use the good old GNU coreutils style?
