Checking MD5 hash on a mac

When downloading software it's always advisable to check the MD5 hash to ensure the download hasn't been corrupted in transit.  To do this on a mac simply run the following command in a terminal:

md5 <file>.iso or ova


Verify the MD5 hash is the same as the hash supplied by the software vendor.
