Hi

I noticed that the md5 computed with md5 module from python is
different then the md5 sum computed with md5sum utility (on slackware
and gentoo).

i.e.
$echo marius|md5sum
0f0f60ac801a9eec2163083a22307deb -

>>> test = md5.new("marius")
>>> print test.hexdigest()
242aa1a97769109065e3b4df359bcfc9


Any idea why? and how to get the same md5 sum for both calls?

Thanks
