Erik's Partial Archive Collator 0.4

Erik's Partial Archive Collator takes a directory as an argument, then walks through it looking for duplicate.
Erik's Partial Archive Collator takes a directory as an argument, then walks through it looking for duplicate and partially duplicate files.

If Erik's Partial Archive Collator finds exact duplicates, it deletes one and creates a hard link to the other, minimizing disk usage.

If it finds a pair of files where the larger file contains the entire contents of the smaller file, it will prompts to combine them and create a hard link.

WARNING: This software has not been as well tested as it should be, and does a lot of linking and unlinking. It's also abusive on ram. It may screw up your archive, or even OOM your machine. Use with caution, on a copy of your archive if possible.

What's New in This Release:

This release re-organizes the source (now a src/ directory), a new -w flag to set the progress bar width, support for OS X 10.3 and 10.4, and various minor bugfixes.
