I need to create a list of checksums of the files that are inside a directory, including any subdirectories.
The command that I try to execute is the following:
sha256sum -b *
-b = Read in Binary. * = Specifies that you must verify all file extensions.
With the command I get the following output:
sha256sum: test0: Is a directory e3d748fdf10adca15c96d77a38aa0447fa87af9c297cb0b75e314cc313367daf *test1.txt db0c7a354881fe2dd1b45642a68f6a971c7421e8fdffe56ffa7c740111e07274 *test2.txt
Instead of reporting that test0 is a directory, you should also generate the checksum of the content.
Do you recommend always using
-b in any type of file? In what cases should
-t be used?
Is it possible to filter the types of files I want to omit in the verification, without having to add all the files I want to admit? What command should I execute?
I looked for help but I do not find anything related.
