EXAMPLES

The following command line will report duplicate pictures, using libpuzzle (-I) whose sizes are greater than 8192 bytes ( -m 8192 ) found recursively (-r) starting in your home directory.

$ ftwin -m 8192 -v -r -I ${HOME}

This line will report duplicate files (no more in "image mode", but according to their content) whose extension is .txt and that are not in a .svn directory:

$ ftwin -e ".*/\.svn/.*" -w ".*\.txt$" -v -r ${HOME}
