NAME
       kua -  find  files which	are identical to the given one (comes from the
	      Hungarian	keresd ugyanazt	- meaning "find	the same")

SYNOPSIS
       kua [OPTION]... -f <file> [FILE]...

DESCRIPTION
       kua will	look for files which are identical to the one given as the ar-
       gument of -f. The files found will be printed on	separate lines.

OPTIONS
       -i     ignore letter case

       -w     ignore white spaces

       -n     do not ask the file system for file size

       -v     verbose output (prints stuff to stderr), verbose help

       -b size
	      set internal buffer size (default	1024)

       -h     this help	(-vh more verbose help)

       -      read  file  names	 from stdin, where each	line contains one file
	      name (this must also be the last option in the list)

OUTPUT
       The files found will be printed on separate lines.

EXAMPLES
       Get help	on usage:

	      $	kua -h
	      $	kua -vh

       Find the	files identical	to fav.mpg under home:

	      $	find ~ -type f | kua -f	~/music/fav.mpg	-

       Only files which	have the same size (according to the FS) will be  con-
       sidered.

       Find files identical to x.h, ignoring white spaces:

	      $	find ~/code -name '*.h'	| kua -b256 -wf	~/code/X/x.h -

       Since the comparison ignores white spaces, use a	smaller	buffer (of 256
       bytes).	White space ignoring comparison	will not care about  the  file
       size and	thus it	is significantly slower.
