nono. :)
MD5SUMs on Websites often appear as 3F4ABC...
but tools like md5sum and so on put the result as 3f4abc...
As I sayed in the initial post. The tool is designed to have only all
neccessary features. Not less or more. Just to compare strings, especially
md5sums here. The "strip whitespace" option is to strip all whitespaces,
that may get in there through cut&paste. Someone might not always be able to
cut the sum from the website very precisely.
