"CLEANER" is a COMMAND LINE TOOL to identify files with IDENTICAL contents.
cleaner (for Linux or Windows) Identifies and marks files with identical
contents by pre-pending __DUPLICATE__ to the filename.
Identifies and mark same length files by pre-pending __DIFF_DUPLICATE__ to
the file name of same size files.
Files pre-pended with __DIFF_DUPLICATE__ may only differ one bit or may
be entirely different files.
Always manually compare the files pre-pended with __DIFF_DUPLICATE__
