script type


After pressing <Enter>, a checksum (md5 by default) will be generated for the
current file. It can also be invoked in visual mode to checksum a selection.

Alternatively the '<Leader>c' mapping can be used, which can be overrided by
configuring the 'g:checksum_map' variable in the .vimrc file.
