(1) When you want to post a chunk of code (or data) at the Monastery, start by typing these two lines into the composition box:

<c>

</c>

Then paste your code (or data) into the space between those two tags; you won't need to muck with anything else in order to get the code (or data) to show up correctly when posted. (Don't forget to put your paragraphs of explanation outside the code tags.)

2. Since you want to use file size to determine when to do md5 checksums, I think it would make more sense to build of a hash of arrays keyed by byte count: for each distinct byte count, the hash key is the size and the hash value is an array holding files of that size. Then loop over the hash and do md5s for each set of two or more files with a given size. You don't really need to do any sorting - just keep track of the different sizes. Here's how I would do it (on a unix/linux system):

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Digest::MD5; die "Usage: $0 dir1 dir2\n" unless ( @ARGV == 2 and -d $ARGV[0] and -d $ARGV[1] ); my %fsize; for my $dir ( @ARGV ) { opendir DIR, $dir or die "$dir: $!\n"; while ( my $fn = readdir DIR ) { next unless -f "$dir/$fn"; push @{$fsize{ -s "$dir/$fn" }}, "$dir/$fn"; } } my %fmd5; my $digest = Digest::MD5->new; for my $bc ( keys %fsize ) { next if scalar @{$fsize{$bc}} == 1; for my $fn ( @{$fsize{$bc}} ) { if ( open( my $fh, "<", $fn )) { $digest->new; $digest->addfile( $fh ); push @{$fmd5{ $digest->b64digest }}, $fn; } } } for my $md ( keys %fmd5 ) { print join( " == ", @{$fmd5{$md}} )."\n" if ( scalar @{$fmd5{$md}} + > 1 ); }
(That just lists sets of files that have identical content; you can tweak it do to other things, as you see fit.)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
