All pending errata for the MD5 test suite are now verified by the IESG; thanks to Alexey Melnikov. The oldest erratum 749 about an MD5 example in RFC 2069 was submitted 2005-02-06 and verified 2010-07-11. Now I feel less bad about dropping out for two years.
For historical reasons the MD5 test suite is one of my REXX scripts still published
as cmd-file instead of a rex-file. On an OS/2 box
REXX is the default scripting language using file extension cmd.
An ordinary OS/2 cmd.exe-shell script never starts with
/*"; any script starting with "
interpreted as REXX.
Good old PC DOS 7 uses extension bat
for command.com-shell scripts, and the text editor
KEDIT uses kex
for its macros; both also identify REXX by "
/*" in line 1.
Please do not feed OS/2 REXX cmd-scripts to the Windows NT cmd.exe-shell; you would get numerous errors. For NT simply rename md5.cmd to md5.rex and let ooREXX interpret it.
