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In Python 2.0 and later, this module has been replaced by filecmp.
