anybody know why that when I run

md5 -s "filename"

I get a completely different hash than

md5deep /filename

I ran it against an md5 that came with a download and the one from terminal didn't match it. I made a new one from md5deep and it did match the online one...

one from online

is the md5sum output the same?

btw, md5 -s "filename"

will give you the md5 checksum of the string "filename". Not the md5 message digest of the file. To get that using md5, use

md5 "filename"
