NAMEmcomp - Compares two files using mtools
SYNOPSISmcomp file-on-floppy local-file
DESCRIPTIONmcomp compares two files, the first one must be on a floppy disk so it can be accesed via mtools. It is not strictly necessary on Debian GNU/Linux, because the diffutils cmp(1) program provides the same capability after copying the file locally with
mcopy file destination
but this utility is provided in the mtools package for other platforms and is retained here for completeness.
AUTHORLuis Bustamante <email@example.com> wrote this page for the Debian/GNU mtools package.
