Comparing existence of massive number of files

        CDCheck looks like what I need. I can do two checksum files (one on
each directory) and compare the results.

        Thanks a lot for the suggestion.

These days, when I put together a data CD, I use CDCheck to
build a CRC file for it. Once the CD is burned, I verify using
the same tool to be sure it all made it onto the CD.

I use MD5SUM too, but that does one directory at a time
(AFAICT) so it is a little less useful.
