make_md5 - Generate MD5 checksums for given set of users.  

SYNOPSIS

make_md5 [ -C config-file ] [ -D md5_dir ] [ -k count ] [ -f input_file ] [ -m offset ] [ -M modulo ] [ -v ] [ userid... ]  

DESCRIPTION

Generate MD5 checksums for messages given set of users. Works as incremental update: reads in existing set of md5 checksums from md5_dir/u/userid (hashed on first letter of userid) if that file exists. Scans account looking for new messages, and then updates record.

The MD5 checksums which are generated are used to test integrity of the master, replica and backup systems on Hermes.

-f input_file
List of accounts to process: use in place of command line arguments.
-m offset
