Re^2: Bitwise comparision of files
in thread Bitwise comparision of files
Based on this explanation, you are going to want to take a look at File::Find. There are other modules on CPAN that try to make up for the horrendous call-back interface but the point is - don't try and walk the directory structure yourself - you will make a mistake.
You are also going to want to take a look at File::Spec. There are a bunch of functions that will help you say things like chop off this portion of the path and replace it with this other path in order to determine if the file even exists in the other directory prior to comparing the actual file contents.
You probably also want to take a look at Digest::MD5
. It isn't a great choice for cryptographical reasons but in order to determine if two files are or are not the same, it has a really simple interface and should work just fine.
If you want more help than that, you are going to have to show some more effort first.
