    Finding Checksums for Software

    Got a new MacBook Pro, and when I am downloading and installing software, I am trying to check the "checksum" for each app.

    Unfortunately, I can't seem to find any for either FileZilla or TextWrangler, which seems strange.

    Because I will be using FileZilla to manage my website, I want to be extra certain that I am g=installing a legitimate copy of the app.

    How can I do that??

    Sincerely,


    Debbie

    The command is md5 $filename

    That said, if you are using FTP to upload your files then I would probably worry about that more than checking the hashes on binaries, especially if you downloaded them from the "horses mouth" so to speak.
