The cmp module
(Obsolete, only in 1.5.2). This module contains a function to compare two files.
# File: cmp-example-1.py import cmp if cmp.cmp("samples/sample.au", "samples/sample.wav"): print "files are identical" else: print "files differ!"
In Python 2.0 and later, this module has been replaced by the filecmp module.
