http://www.unix.com – I am pretty new to scripting, so I appreciate your advice in advance. The problem: 100 directories each containing 2 files that have the same extension with random names. The only attribute that discriminates the files is size. I would like to write a script that compares the files for size and deletes the smaller of the two. Thanks! - OSX, X11, bash (HowTos)
