Update rmlint to 2.10.1

Authored by algent on Thu, Jun 18, 9:01 PM.




  • Added:
    • implement -i option for to ask before removal of each file.
    • --replay works now with -D: .json created without -D can now be packed into duplicate directories during replay. Vice versa, duplicate directories can be unpacked if no -D switch was given.
  • Changed:
    • Related to the --replay feature: The .json output now contains part_of_directory entries if generated with -D. Those are basically duplicates the duplicate directories are composed out of.
    • The sh output now visually denotes groups of duplicates with a newline.
  • Fixed:
    • Broken JSON output in case of paths with double quotes.
    • The mtime comparison was broken when using --xattr.
    • Timestamps for xattr were locale-sensitive.
    • ui: Changing the size factor did not let you apply the settings.
    • --size can now correctly handle very large sizes.
