I use OS X and have several checksum files that are generated from different external harddisks.
If the checksum files are in the same location as the files to check then I can simply run eg.:
shasum -c sums.sha1
But in my case
sums.sha1 is located in
~/Desktop/sums.sha1 and the files to verify are in
/Volumes/fr-ubb-1 (external drive, read only).
I understand that it's not possible to pass a location parameter to
What's the best practice to run the verification of my checksum file with files in a different location?
