Hey Jeremy:

I'm sorry to say that when I tried this I learned that my  
implementation of -I / --ignore-dirs was utterly broken.  I fixed  
that, added avoidance of infinite loop in case of symlink recursion,  
and uploaded dupfilefind v1.4.0.


You can install it with "easy_install -U dupfilefind".

Hm.  Judging from the command-line that you pasted above, it looks  
like you thought the default directory was "/" when actually the  
default directory was ".".  I added a clarifying note to the usage  
string and uploaded v1.4.1.  :-)



who is leaving the following running overnight:

$ time sudo dupfilefind -p -I /proc,/sys,/dev,/tmp,/var/tmp / 2>&1 |  
tee /tmp/dupfiles.out
