The dircmp Module

(Obsolete, Only in 1.5.2) The dircmp module provides a class that can be used to compare the contents of two disk directories, as Example 14-18 shows.

Example 14-18. Using the dircmp Module
File: dircmp-example-1.py

import dircmp

d = dircmp.dircmp()
d.new("samples", "oldsamples")
d.run()
d.report()

diff samples oldsamples
Only in samples : [sample.aiff, sample.au, sample.wav]
Identical files : [sample.gif, sample.gz, sample.jpg, ...]

In Python 2.0 and later, this module has been replaced by filecmp.
