A Perl script for removal of redundant files from a filesystem that exist in another filesystem. This program takes two arguments, a working path and a master path, and then compares their contents and offers to delete identical components from the working path. A path can be a file or directory.

Design goal:

This script is used to facilitate the deletion of redundant files and directories from a filesystem. This is frequently required when restoring backups using dobackup or during manual OS upgrades.
