Bug in md5sum ?

From: Fabiani, Martin
Subject: Bug in md5sum ?
Date: Fri Nov 29 14:28:44 2002

we have tested md5sum and found that it doesn't calculate the results of the testcases in RFC1321 (see http://www.cis.ohio-state.edu/cgi-bin/rfc/rfc1321.html ). The same problem appears to md5. The only solution we've found working correctly is the Perl-Module Digest::MD5...
These errors appear under Win2k and different versions of Solaris.
C:\work\perl\basics\md5>md5sum --version
md5sum (textutils) 2.0.21
Written by Ulrich Drepper and Scott Miller.
--- extract from RFC1321 ---
MD5 ("") = d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e
MD5 ("a") = 0cc175b9c0f1b6a831c399e269772661
MD5 ("abc") = 900150983cd24fb0d6963f7d28e17f72
MD5 ("message digest") = f96b697d7cb7938d525a2f31aaf161d0
MD5 ("abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz") = c3fcd3d76192e4007dfb496cca67e13b
MD5 ("ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789") =
--- cut ---
But the results under Win2k pro are:
C:\work\perl\basics\md5>echo "" | md5sum

C:\work\perl\basics\md5>echo a | md5sum

C:\work\perl\basics\md5>echo abc | md5sum
