Checksums and an odd file 'ffp.txt'.

Kernel, GNU (Slackware 12.0).

I have the following files.
root@darkstar:/xp/audio/Mozart_41/Mozart, Jupiter Symphony, Collegium Aureum 24-bit# ls
Mozart,\ Jupiter\ Symphony,\ Collegium\ Aureum\ 24-bit.txt*
Torrent\ downloaded\ from\*
root@darkstar:/xp/audio/Mozart_41/Mozart, Jupiter Symphony, Collegium Aureum 24-bit#
If you see ffp.txt, which I attach, it seems to be a collection of checksums. However, they seem not be md5sum checksums (at least md5sum said ffp.txt was not properly formatted; and I did 'md5sum Mozart_Jupiter_Collegium_Aureum_24-bit_01-cr.flac' and the output was different from the checksum in ffp.txt). Do you know in what way I can use ffp.txt, or what is the application I can use for it? Regards.

ffp.txt are flac fingerprint files used to visually compare different flac filesets for lineage purposes.

I can't believe it! There is also a man page for the flac command. I thank you from my heart.
