No

The --help states that md5 id the default hash
algorithm, but when hashwindow is set without hash, no
hash is generated at all:

# ./dcfldd if=dcfldd of=test hashwindow=0

15+1 records in
15+1 records out

If md5 is the default hash, then shouldn't I get an md5
above? If I specify a hash algorithm, then things work
as expected:

# ./dcfldd if=dcfldd of=test hash=md5 hashwindow=0
Total (md5): 890ee73d3ff1e369213317fcf059bb2e

15+1 records in
15+1 records out

Thanks,

Chris

    MD5 was supposed to be the default hashtype but it wasn't
    getting set in the program. Fixed.
