sha384sum - compute and check SHA384 message digest


   sha384sum [OPTION]... [FILE]...


   Print or check SHA384 (384-bit) checksums.

   With no FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard input.

   -b, --binary
          read in binary mode

   -c, --check
          read SHA384 sums from the FILEs and check them

   --tag  create a BSD-style checksum

   -t, --text
          read in text mode (default)

   The following five options are useful only when verifying checksums:
          don't fail or report status for missing files

          don't print OK for each successfully verified file

          don't output anything, status code shows success

          exit non-zero for improperly formatted checksum lines

   -w, --warn
          warn about improperly formatted checksum lines

   --help display this help and exit

          output version information and exit

   The  sums  are computed as described in FIPS-180-2.  When checking, the
   input should be a former output of this program.  The default  mode  is
   to  print  a  line with checksum, a space, a character indicating input
   mode ('*' for binary, ' ' for text or where binary  is  insignificant),
   and name for each FILE.
