MANIFEST: md5_purge.pl PROJECT: meta VERSION: 0.01
Give this script a set of directories to work on and it will remove all duplicates in that directory.
This script provide two policies: 1. Ask the user on each set of duplicates on which to remove. You will be prompted on which of the duplicates you want to keep. Keep in mind that more than two duplicate files may exists and so more than one file may be erased at each interaction. 2. Remove the duplicate itself. The script will just remove all but the first instance of the duplicates group.
The default policy is to ask the user.
