Install using the convenience script - How to verify?

Hello to everybody,

I would like to install docker on my raspberry pi server. As far as I understood I have to use the convenience script. On https://docs.docker.com/engine/install/debian/#install-using-the-convenience-script is stated that you should examine the script before usage.

Is there any guide how to verify that I got the valid script? Most other project offer little guide how to verify with gpg or at least sha256 hash. Yes I could read and try to understand the script but, I’m not an expert and not familiar with most of the commands.

Or is there in the future a way to install docker in RaspberryPi OS without this script?

Thank you in advance.

To answer my own question. Get the install.sh script from the github repo and the script from https://get.docker.com/, save both in text files.
Then you can compare the files with diff filename.sh filename2.sh and you get the possible difference.
