     This simple program compares the file contents of two folders for similarity. It checks the latest write time, file size, and if both of those are the same, it generates a quick checkum (by adding every 100th byte) and compares that. All files are color-coded so you can see at a glance the difference between the folders. You can change the color-coding scheme by double-clicking the colors for any item in the top part of the legend. NOTE: I've left the binaries out of the zip file, so you'll have to compile yourself. Hope you enjoy, and please remember to vote (I'm just curious!) -Mark

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
