Re: Comprehensive integrity verification with md5deep

True, but md5deep is blazingly fast compared to md5sum or sha1sum -- approximately 5 times as fast in CPU time, in my crude benchmarks with my own data.

Actually, "openssl dgst" is a tad faster than even md5deep, but (AFAIK) it doesn't recurse.

I often use it to figure out what kind of stuff has changed between 2 directories.
