use "diff" to compare any file missing


I have two directory , I would like to compare the file difference , if found any file is not match , then send me alert , like the below example , the /ora1 have the file test3 , but /ora2 do not have , /ora2 have file test4 but /ora1 do not have , then send me alter mail for the difference , can advise what can i do ?

#ls /ora1
test1
test2
test3

#ls /ora2
test1
test2
test4


Furthermore , under /ora1 have a directory temp ( but /ora2 do not have this directory ) , so how to only compare the file but not compare directory ?


Please advise what can i do ? thx

So, are you trying to tell us you want the members to write you a script?

The version of diff I have installed doesn't seem to have a ignore directory. Although when I tested, if it found differences it prints out the name. You could always grep it out of the final output since you know the name is temp/

diff <dir1> <dir2> | grep -v temp
