xxhsum(1)                        User Commands                       xxhsum(1)


       xxhsum - print or check xxHash non-cryptographic checksums


       xxhsum [<OPTION>] ... [<FILE>] ... xxhsum -b [<OPTION>] ...

       xxh32sum  is  equivalent to xxhsum -H0 xxh64sum is equivalent to xxhsum
       -H1 xxh128sum is equivalent to xxhsum -H2


       Print or check xxHash (32, 64 or 128 bits)  checksums.  When  no  FILE,
       read  standard  input, except if it's the console. When FILE is -, read
       standard input even if it's the console.

       xxhsum supports a command line syntax  similar  but  not  identical  to
       md5sum(1). Differences are: xxhsum doesn't have text/binary mode switch
       (-b, -t); xxhsum always treats files as binary file; xxhsum has a  hash
       bit width switch (-H);

       As xxHash is a fast non-cryptographic checksum algorithm, xxhsum should
       not be used for security related purposes.

       xxhsum -b invokes benchmark mode. See OPTIONS and EXAMPLES for details.


       -V, --version
              Displays xxhsum version and exits

              Hash  selection.  HASHTYPE  means 0=32bits, 1=64bits, 2=128bits.
              Alternatively,  HASHTYPE  32=32bits,   64=64bits,   128=128bits.
              Default value is 1 (64bits)

       --tag  Output in the BSD style.

              Set  output  hexadecimal checksum value as little endian conven-
              tion. By default, value is displayed as big endian.

       -h, --help
              Displays help and exits

       The following four options are useful  only  when  verifying  checksums

       -c, --check FILE
              Read xxHash sums from FILE and check them

       -q, --quiet
              Don't print OK for each successfully verified file

              Return  an  error  code  if any line in the file is invalid, not
              just if some checksums are wrong. This  policy  is  disabled  by
              default,  though  UI will prompt an informational message if any
              line in the file is detected invalid.

              Don't output anything. Status code shows success.

       -w, --warn
              Emit a warning message about each improperly formatted  checksum

       The following options are useful only benchmark purpose

       -b     Benchmark mode. See EXAMPLES for details.

       -b#    Specify  ID  of  variant  to be tested. Multiple variants can be
              selected, separated by a ',' comma.

              Only useful for benchmark mode (-b). See EXAMPLES  for  details.
              BLOCKSIZE  specifies  benchmark  mode's  test data block size in
              bytes. Default value is 102400

              Only useful for benchmark mode (-b). See EXAMPLES  for  details.
              ITERATIONS  specifies  number of iterations in benchmark. Single
              iteration lasts approximately 1000 milliseconds.  Default  value
              is 3


       xxhsum  exit  0  on success, 1 if at least one file couldn't be read or
       doesn't have the same checksum as the -c option.


       Output xxHash (64bit) checksum values of  specific  files  to  standard

           $ xxhsum -H1 foo bar baz

       Output  xxHash  (32bit  and 64bit) checksum values of specific files to
       standard output, and redirect it to xyz.xxh32 and qux.xxh64

           $ xxhsum -H0 foo bar baz > xyz.xxh32
           $ xxhsum -H1 foo bar baz > qux.xxh64

       Read xxHash sums from specific files and check them

           $ xxhsum -c xyz.xxh32 qux.xxh64

       Benchmark xxHash algorithm. By default, xxhsum benchmarks  xxHash  main
       variants  on a synthetic sample of 100 KB, and print results into stan-
       dard output. The first column is the algorithm, the  second  column  is
       the source data size in bytes, the third column is the number of hashes
       generated per second (throughput), and finally the last  column  trans-
       lates speed in megabytes per second.

           $ xxhsum -b

       In the following example, the sample to hash is set to 16384 bytes, the
       variants to be benched are selected by their IDs,  and  each  benchmark
       test is repeated 10 times, for increased accuracy.

           $ xxhsum -b1,2,3 -i10 -B16384
