Calculates the MD5 Checksum of a file, and compares it to an original.
CheckMD5 is a Linux/Unix Bash script that calculates the MD5 checksum of a file, and compares it to an original either by selecting an original copy of the file, or manually entering the checksum of the original file, such as when it is provided on a website from which you downloaded a file.
The purpose of this project was not just to tell you what the checksum is, but to quickly compare it to an original and give you a "Go" or "No Go" status so you don't have to manually spend time comparing the two checksums character by character, so you can verify that a file is or isn't good, and move on to more important things in your life.
The script depends on the programs "md5sum" and "zenity", which come standard in most flavors of Linux or Unix. It may also run in OSX since bash is available and it runs on a BSD/*nix kernel, but I don't have access to an Apple computer to test this.

checkmd5 works perfectly.
