Hashing /dev/null or the null string (echo -n "") would output the contents of the initial Tiger context.
$ digest tiger /dev/null
TIGER (/dev/null) = 0123456789abcdeffedcba9876543210f096a5b4c3b2e187

It should be:
$ ./digest tiger /dev/null
TIGER (/dev/null) = 24f0130c63ac933216166e76b1bb925ff373de2d49584e7a


Note: I posted a complete report along with a patch to the FreeBSD GNATS database at:

Around the same time I sent an e-mail to so I assume it got lost.
