cough... technically... that sounds like a bug in gqview to me.
Because the feature is 'find duplicates'... not 'find 90% or more
similar based on some magic algorithm that might be what i mean when I
think of similar since well similar could be defined
about 300 different similar but not exactly duplicate ways and and
tweaking of the algorithm over time with different releases would
result in strikingly different results being presented to the user so
its more a sense of artistic style than a really quantative
Nah. It's a well-designed feature. Please take a look at gqview before
commenting on it. The "find duplicates" feature can be customized. You can
choose from different comparison criteria. Finding exact duplicates (=
"similarity 100%") is possible, too, of course.
