mass MD5 hash generation


Does anyone have a good way of taking a list of users passwords and generating the a md5 hash based on them?

doing echo "text" | m5sum doesn't give me the correct md5 hash for a text string.

doing this I get:
286755fad04869ca523320acce0dc6a4

the correct md5 hash should be:
5f4dcc3b5aa765d61d8327deb882cf99


Anybody have any ides?

Thanks

Is it possible the newline from the echo is causing the problem?

Try: echo -n "text" | md5sum
