Some simple and trickier ways of using the find command.

See AboutThesePages.



  • Using find to create a list of files for another command (like md5sum). Note, there are several approaches to doing things something like this, some using pipes and redirection, others using xargs, others using the backticks (as here). I'm not too uncomfortable with pipes and redirection, but I'm not very clear on the difference (or similarity) of xargs and backticks.
md5sum -b `find -type f` > chksums

Aside: If you are copying the original files to a different location, you can then check all the files against the checksums generated in the first command with:

md5sum -c chksums

Or, you could generate a checksum of checksums using:

md5sum -b chksums
