Introduction
--------------------------------------------------------------------
FDUPES is a program for identifying duplicate files residing
within specified directories. 


Usage
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Usage: fdupes [options] DIRECTORY...

 -r --recurse            for every directory given follow subdirectories
                         encountered within
 -R --recurse:           for each directory given after this option follow
                         subdirectories encountered within (note the ':' at the
                         end of the option, manpage for more details)
 -s --symlinks           follow symlinks
 -H --hardlinks          normally, when two or more files point to the same
                         disk area they are treated as non-duplicates; this
                         option will change this behavior
 -G --minsize=SIZE       consider only files greater than or equal to SIZE bytes
 -L --maxsize=SIZE       consider only files less than or equal to SIZE bytes
 -n --noempty            exclude zero-length files from consideration
 -A --nohidden           exclude hidden files from consideration
 -f --omitfirst          omit the first file in each set of matches
 -1 --sameline           list each set of matches on a single line
 -S --size               show size of duplicate files
 -t --time               show modification time of duplicate files
 -m --summarize          summarize dupe information
 -q --quiet              hide progress indicator
 -d --delete             prompt user for files to preserve and delete all
                         others; important: under particular circumstances,
                         data may be lost when using this option together
                         with -s or --symlinks, or when specifying a
                         particular directory more than once; refer to the
                         fdupes documentation for additional information
 -D --deferconfirmation  in interactive mode, defer byte-for-byte confirmation
                         of duplicates until just before file deletion
 -P --plain              with --delete, use line-based prompt (as with older
                         versions of fdupes) instead of screen-mode interface
 -N --noprompt           together with --delete, preserve the first file in
                         each set of duplicates and delete the rest without
                         prompting the user
 -I --immediate          delete duplicates as they are encountered, without
                         grouping into sets; implies --noprompt
 -p --permissions        don't consider files with different owner/group or
                         permission bits as duplicates
 -o --order=BY           select sort order for output and deleting; by file
                         modification time (BY='time'; default), status
                         change time (BY='ctime'), or filename (BY='name')
 -i --reverse            reverse order while sorting
 -l --log=LOGFILE        log file deletion choices to LOGFILE
 -v --version            display fdupes version
 -h --help               display this help message

Unless -1 or --sameline is specified, duplicate files are listed
together in groups, each file displayed on a separate line. The
groups are then separated from each other by blank lines.

When -1 or --sameline is specified, spaces and backslash characters (\)
appearing in a filename are preceded by a backslash character. For
instance, "with spaces" becomes "with\ spaces".

When using -d or --delete, care should be taken to insure against
accidental data loss. While no information will be immediately
lost, using this option together with -s or --symlink can lead
to confusing information being presented to the user when prompted
for files to preserve. Specifically, a user could accidentally
preserve a symlink while deleting the file it points to. A similar
problem arises when specifying a particular directory more than
once. All files within that directory will be listed as their own
duplicates, leading to data loss should a user preserve a file
without its "duplicate" (the file itself!).
