This is what works for me:
I have a file called test.html.
So I generate its md5 sum by:
md5sum test.html > test.html.md5sum
If I then want to check the integrity of test.html, I do the following
md5sum -c test.html.md5sum
You run the -c on the md5sum file. It know which file to check because its
listed in that md5sum file.
Does that answer your question?
