lntree - Link files in directory trees

Johan Vromans
Software & Tools

This is 'lntree', a tool to compare directory trees.

'lntree old-dir new-dir' recursively examines all files in the two source trees and link the files that are equal. To be precise: if two files are equal (same size, same contents), the one in directory new-dir is replaced by a link to the file in old-dir.

This results in cleaner source trees, and a substantial saving of disk space, for example when multiple versions of the same source tree need to be kept on-line.

Current version
CPAN sites. The MetaCPAN search engine will find it for you.
