file compare feature

Post by jazzygui » Tue Nov 09, 2010 9:25 pm

Hello Alex,

Still working hard on xstarter as you know :D

I rectently test the file comparison in text area.

I tried first to compare binary files believing that it would anyway detect a basic difference but
you function is not made for this I guess.
No returned argument will help to know if a main difference has been found between bin files.

Could it be possible to return a new argument covering differs or equal when
for either binary or text files ?

It would be very convenient.

The other way to compare binary file is to use runprocess:

[WINDOWSSYSTEMDIR]\fc.exe
"path1\file1name" "path2\file2name"

Then check run process exit code..
