md5 or dgst -md5 openssl


Hello for all

I want to know the main difference between

openssl dgst -md5 -out c:\hashed.txt message.txt

and

openssl md5 -out c:\hashed.txt message.txt

When I execute the two commands, I get the same result.

In both cases, you're telling openssl to generate a MD5 hash of a file. Why would the results differ?
