Ok. I posted an update above - basically you can use $File::Find::dir instead of getcwd so that the relative path instead of the absolute path becomes the key. But now I'm unclear - I understand that if two files in corresponding relative paths have matching MD5 sums you want to do something, but I don't understand what that is. Right now what would happen is that you copy the file onto itself.

    exactly, and that is my issue, that I am not sure how I need to change the code to get the appropriate arguments to 'cp'.
      So, I'm still not clear...what do you want it to do? In the OP you only said you wanted to compare MD5 sums of corresponding files. I don't see how copying fits into it.
        I am trying to synchronize the files recursively in the 2 dirs, so that everything in the source is checked in the destination, and updated if necessary, using md5's to check the files.
