"and optionally a digest to check that the file being downloaded is the 
right one."

Add "and was downloaded correctly (not corrupted or truncated)."

"with which the digest computed from the downloaded file will be 
compared" -> "to which..."

"but the digest is checked if present" -> "if specified"

The example contains a digest, but the bash script does not include any 
checking of the digest. It would be simpler to remove the digest from 
the example, because the equivalent bash script would be very complicated.
