Summary 0000711: Add utility command for a logical compare of 2 files
Revision 2015-08-05 19:32 by Falk Reichbott
Description It would very helpful to have a utility command for a logical compare of 2 files with FLCL.

Based on the conversion cabebilities of FLAM and the transparent read of different file formats a logical compare of the clear content of to files would be very helpful. For example:

 * Compare a member of a ZIP archive with a GZIP, BZIP, XZ or PGP file.
 * Compare a UTF-16 text file with a EBCDIC host data set
 * Compare a FLAMFILE member from ZOS (EBCDIC) with an text file on UNIX (UTF-8)
 * Compare a XML file from USS in UTF-16 (Java) with a base encoded PGP-File
 * aso

In all this cases the clear neutral logical content of the file independent of its physical representation (host dataset, FLAMFILE, ZIP archive, GZIP file) must be identical and if a differenz the element with the differnz must be logged.
