File Comparisons

BRU can compare the contents of an existing archive with the current online files, reporting all those online files that have been modified, have had their attributes changed, or have been removed since the archive was created. For example, using a reference archive of a standard UNIX distribution, BRU can be used to detect which files have been changed or are missing. This is a valuable capability when you encounter system problems and you suspect that the cause is corrupted or missing system files.
