Find identical files on your file system

The samefile program helps you find identical files on your file systems.
Identical files don't have to have the same name to be found by samefile.
The input is a list of filenames, e.g. from ls(1) or find(1). The output
is a list of file name pairs along with some other useful information.

Samefile comes in handy when you

 - are notoriously low on disk space. It will probably find megabytes of
   redundant files that you can then hardlink, symlink or remove.

 - want to know what files in two subdirectory trees have (not) changed.

The program is reasonably fast to even check any file against any other.
