The fingerprint is based on Dan Berstien <firstname.lastname@example.org> public domain fingerprint 0.50 beta package 930809, posted to the alt.sources newsgroup. This program produces identical results; the expected test results were generated using Dan's package.
The fingerprint is a base‐64‐sanely‐encoded fingerprint of the input. Imagine this fingerprint as something universal and permanent. A fingerprint is 76 characters long, containing the following:
The output format is not expected to be compatible with anything. However, options are available to produce the purported output of Merkle's snefru program, the purported output of RSADSI's mddriver -x, or the purported output of the POSIX cksum program.
If no files are named as input, the standard input will be used.
The special file name “-” is understood to mean the standard
All other options will produce a diagnostic error.
All options may be abbreviated; the abbreviation is documented as the upper case letters, all lower case letters and underscores (_) are optional. You must use consecutive sequences of optional letters.
All options are case insensitive, you may type them in upper case or lower case or a combination of both, case is not important.
For example: the arguments “-project”, “-PROJ” and “-p” are all interpreted to mean the -Project option. The argument “-prj” will not be understood, because consecutive optional characters were not supplied.
Options and other command line arguments may be mixed arbitrarily
on the command line, after the function selectors.
The GNU long option names are understood. Since all option names for aefp are long, this means ignoring the extra leading '-'. The “--option=value” convention is also understood.
