The dircmp module
(Obsolete, only in 1.5.2). This module provides a class that can be used to compare the contents of two disk directories.
# File: dircmp-example-1.py import dircmp d = dircmp.dircmp() d.new("samples", "oldsamples") d.run() d.report()
$ python dircmp-example-1.py 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In Python 2.0 and later, this module has been replaced by the filecmp module.
