MD5 Syntax problem

Trying to learn to use the md5 algorythm. When I create a test.txt file on my win2kpro box and run:

md5 test.txt

I get:

19046C9BB7E56993357AD71F511C325E

Which is great, but I'd like to be able to verify checksums against a previously saved hash which supposedly is like this

md5 -c 19046C9BB7E56993357AD71F511C325E -d test.txt

but then I get:

Error in signature specification.  Must be 32 Hex digits.

I counted carefully and there are 32 hex digits there so my syntax must be messed up, anyone know what happened?
