Bash how to generate md5 checksums on all files in a directory

In this article let’s discuss about Bash how to generate md5 checksums on all files in a directory. Let’s go through the following methods without any delay.

Method 1:

# Basic syntax:
md5sum /path/to/directory/* > list_of_checksums

# Note, md5sum will run on any files that are found with your search
# 	pattern. For example:
md5sum /path/*/*files_I_want* > list_of_checksums
# This would process all files than contain the substring "files_I_want"
# in all directories in the "path" directory

Hope the above solution works.
