Has two properties, compare-directory and to-directory. Compares the two directories recursively and outputs the difference to a file. The output of the compare operation should depend on boolean parameters, such as: "show files that are only in the compare location", "show files that are only in the to location", "show files that are different in both locations".
Example: I want to use this to compare an older fileset (directory B) of a project with a newer subset of files (directory A) that is to be merged with the older. I want to find out about all files that exists in directory A and not in directory B. I do not want info about files that exists in directory B and not in directory A. Lastly I want info about files that exists in both places but differ.
Does such a task exist? If not, are there tasks that would facilitate creating a task that does this for me?
The Linux version of the "diff" utility does something like this.
Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.

Thanks, but I am looking to have this as an ANT task so I can incorporate it in an existing script. The only common denominator that I can assume between me and the other people using the script is that they can run ANT with custom tasks.
