There are 3 files in dir1.  I want to check if the 3 files are the same in dir2, so the three files exist in dir2 and have the same exact content.  Note, dir2 may have other files.

You could use the File::Dircmp module to find the file name differences and combine that with File::Compare to check the files of the same name.
