I am trying to get the md5 from a lot of files. I would use ls to list files and md5 to get a hash of all the files from multiple directories like so

md5 `ls -R /`

this would work if the names of the files didn't include spaces like this

[AkihitoSubs] Zetsuen no Tempest - 21 [BD 1920x1080 x256 10Bit AC3].mkv

how would one get an md5 hash from all these poorly named files

1 Answer 1

find ./ -name "*" -exec md5sum {} \;

Should do the trick.
