Identical file validation using shell script?

scmuser created the topic: identical file validation using shell script?

Device a script that accepts two directory names, bar1 and bar2, and deletes those files in bar2 which are identical to their namesakes in bar1.

Solution:

#!/bin/bash
cd $1
for file in * ; do
if [ -f ../$2/$file ] ; then
cmp $file ../$2/$file >/dev/null 2>/dev/null && rm ../$2/$file
fi
done
