finding duplicates
Authored by: hayne on Jan 19, '06 10:46:20PM

The above script has a hard-coded list of duplicates.
But if you want to find other duplicates (e.g. in newly released packs) you might be interested in the Perl script I wrote. It is actually a very general script for finding duplicates of any type of file (based on comparing the MD5 digests that are computed from the content of the files).

You can get this Perl script (which I call "findDupeFiles") from the following thread on the macosxhints forums (post #7 of that thread):
