Someone must know a simple way to do this:

I regulalrly need to compare the permissions of two largely similar archives 
stored in two seperate paths.

Most of the files are of the same name and relative path but  there may be 
miscellaneous additional files present or absent in each archive.

I want:
1.  to be able to produce a list of the full path and name of those files that 
share an identical path from their respective archive roots, but have 
different permissions. 

2. After examining the list I would like to be able to adjust the permissions 
so that files of the same path and name in one selected archive are afjusted 
to match the permissions of their equivalent file in the other archive.

Does anyone have a simple solution?
