To compare binary files that are of the same size, I often do something like this: od -Ax -t x1 file1.bin > file1.txt od -Ax -t x1 file2.bin > file2.txt diff -u file1.txt file2.txt Actually, I usually do not construct the file2.txt, but compare it on-the-fly: od -Ax -t x1 file2.bin | diff -u file1.txt - These should work on any Unix. In the past, I used a program called "hexdump" in some GNU/Linux distributions. Marko Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2014-04-25 06:00:02
