If a directory is specified, it is searched for
appropriately-named files only.
The options are as follows:
Report on all distribution components, not just those in respect of
which errors are detected.
Ignore missing distribution components.
Search specified directories recursively.
Suppress complaints about inaccessible checksum files and directories.
Verify the existence of distribution components (and also check sizes,
in the case of
files), but omit the more time-consuming step of
actually computing and comparing checksums.
