SYNOPSIS

        md5_finddup.pl [options]

DESCRIPTION

This script processes an XML/md5 type file and looks for duplicate MD5 sums (which, in high probability, indicate that the same files are involved...), and prints out the files which have the same MD5 sums. The user gets to select what to do with the file: remove the file, keep the file etc... This is an interactive program.
