Given a file extension ('*.m' or '*.mat' etc.) and a directory (path), this script will scan the directory and all sub-directories for duplicate file names. It will provide a list of duplicate file names and their paths. It is helpful when you have multiple m files, for example, that have the same name and could conflict with each other.
