i-Commands (Linux)
If you want to calculate and record the checksum for a file (e.g. after the iphymv and after the irsync), the syntax is:

	ichksum -a -r <collection>

If you update a file and need to refresh the checksum stored in iRODS, the syntax is:

	ichksum -a -r -f <collection|file>

If you ever want to verify that the data on the disk is unchanged from when it was iphymv'd and/or irsync'd, the syntax is:

	ichksum -a -r -K <collection>

if the data is unchanged, the output looks like this:

[l_vrowley@ccdb-irods ~]$ ichksum -K place_holder.txt
    place_holder.txt                  9f6e7e2bdab39a088cce8744eb782531


if the data has been changed/corrupted, the output looks like this:

[l_vrowley@ccdb-irods ~]$ ichksum -K place_holder.txt
