A flexible and extendable file and directory comparison tool.

Project Description

Rcmp is a more flexible file and directory comparison tool.


Install the Python modules. You can either do it for all users:

# python install

Or just for yourself:

$ python install --user

Unit Tests

You can run the unit tests using “make check” but this currently presupposes some things like a globally installed version of virtualenv.


The basic idea here is that depending on content, files don’t have to be bitwise identical in order to be equivalent or “close enough”. This is particularly true for things like build directories where binaries might include otherwise irrelevant nondeterminisms like time stamps. Rcmp includes a flexible extension structure to allow for a living set of file comparisons.
