IDEA: MD5 Utility For Packaging Updates
« on: January 17, 2008, 08:30:02 AM »
I will build this, because I need it. But I don't want to reinvent the wheel if somebody has already created what I need.

I need to take two directories, one "before" and one "after". I then need to generate a list of filenames of the files that have changed. That listing needs to be exported in a file that I could use with a compression utility (ZIP) to create an self-extracting file with only the changed files in it.

I have tried several tools but nothing does what I need without a lot of massaging of the data. Before I write scripts to automate this, I wanted to check with the community first.
