MD5 - Command Line Message Digest Utility
SYNOPSIS

md5 [ -csignature ] [ -l ] [ -n ] [ -u ] [ -v ] [ -dinput_text | infileā€¦ ]

OPTIONS

-csignature
Computes the signature of the specified infile or the string supplied by the -d option and compares it against the specified signature. If the two signatures match, the exit status will be zero, otherwise the exit status will be 1. No signature is written; only the exit status is set. The signature to be checked must be specified as 32 hexadecimal digits.
-dinputtext
A signature is computed for the given input
text (which must be quoted if it contains white space characters) instead of input from infile or standard input. If input is specified with the -d option, no infile should be specified.
-l
Use lower case letters for hexadecimal digits "a" through "f". By default, upper case letters are used. Note that the signature argument to the -c option may use upper or lower case hexadecimal digits (or a mix) regardless of the setting of this option.
-n
Suppress printing the file name (or "-" for standard input) after the hexadecimal signature.
-ofname
Write output to fname. If fname is "-", output is written to standard output, which is the default is no -o option is specified.
-u
Print how-to-call information.
-v
Print version information.
FILES

If no infile or -d option is specified or infile is a single "-", md5 reads from standard input. A single "-" on the command line causes all subsequent arguments to be treated as file names even if they begin with "-". If no -o option is specified or the fname is a single "-", output is sent to standard output. Input and output are processed strictly serially; consequently md5 may be used in pipelines.

To install MD5, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install md5

To upgrade MD5, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:
