Bash Scripting - Recursive MD5sum On Files In Directory

Blog tags: 

Recently, I wanted to get the MD5sums of all of the files with a specific extension in the current directory and create a hash sum file for each. This was achieved using the following Bash script.


# Get a list of files in a directory without the .md5 extension
# Note the ticks
LIST=`find . -name "*.txt" -a ! -name '.md5'`
