    and for SHA1 checksum and the other variations. This is less important for most users, but some distributions use this.

    %sha1sum <file name>

    %shaXXsum <file name>
    Where XX is the number of the SHA has function encryption.

    But don't rely on SHA1 too much, its been compromised. There are also 224, 256, 384, and 512.
