manicheck - check manifest accuracy


Manicheck compares the files listed in your (or MANIFEST if that file is not present) with the files within your distribution. It will report files listed in the manifest but not present or files missing from your manifest file.

Manicheck produces the following temporary files:

lists filenames from manifest
lists all potential source files

If MANIFEST is not 100% accurate, the following files may be created:

files not listed in manifest
files missing from manifest
