avo has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I've been looking arround for an explanation of how to get md5 sum of a file remotely with perl. I have a script that downloads a file using net::ftp and then storing it localy... obviously if the file transfer is not complete the file stored localy is not the right one... So I've been thinkig - what is the best way to get a MD5 sum of the remote file using either net::ftp / net::sftp or (maybe) net::ssh ? Thanks for the help!
Note: I am not creating the files on the ftp server, which means that I have no way to create a checksum file there either.
