The "-s 466c63bb71b710d20a5c353df8c1a19c" part of your command is requesting an md5 hash of the literal string of characters "466c63bb71b710d20a5c353df8c1a19c".
That's almost certainly not what you want, and will only serve to confuse.
Ah, but you've now unconfused me.
Try running just this instead:
What I want to do is avoid having to verify a match by eye. Here's what I just tried:
FreeB md5 httpd-2.0.48.tar.gz > thing1 ; echo 466c63bb71b710d20a5c353df8c1a19c > thing2 ; echo difference is `diff thing1 thing2` ; rm thing1 thing2
difference is 1c1 < MD5 (httpd-2.0.48.tar.gz) = 466c63bb71b710d20a5c353df8c1a19c --- > 466c63bb71b710d20a5c353df8c1a19c
FreeB md5 httpd-2.0.48.tar.gz > thing1 ; echo 466c63bb71b710d20a5c353df8c1a19c > thing2
FreeB more thing1
MD5 (httpd-2.0.48.tar.gz) = 466c63bb71b710d20a5c353df8c1a19c FreeB ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Seems the problem here is that the md5 cmd's output is not simply the result string but a description of the cmd together with the result. If I need to do much of this guess a little pgm's called for.
