Copy Confirmer

Command line tool that lets you check if one library is copied into other(s).


Warning: The crate is still pretty new and there are some big changes to the API to be expected.

Example: Check with one destination directory

To check if directory /path/to/source has been copied into /path/to/destination:

copcon -s /path/to/source -d /path/to/destination

If there are any files in the source dir missing in the destination (say, /path/to/source/missing_file is missing from /path/to/destination), the program will print the missing files:

Missing files:

Example: Check with multiple destinations

To check if /path/to/source has been divided into two directories /path/to/destination_1 and /path/to/destination_2 run:

copcon -s /path/to/source -d /path/to/destination_1 -d /path/to/destination_2

If all files in the source directory are present in one of the destination directories, copy confirmer will print:

All files present in destinations

We can also print a json containing all files in source and their paths in destinations using flags --print-found --out-file some_file.json.
