Comparing directories in MacOsX

date of original post on Blogger: March 7, 2008

I needed to check if a directory and its backup were equal.
I found two nice ways of doing this:
– diff -rq dir1 dir2
and the very powerful FileMerge (one of the Apple Developer Tools) thac can be lauched frm the shell with “opendiff”.
