The cmpcache module
(Obsolete, only in 1.5.2). This module contains a function to compare two files. It’s an extension of the cmp module, in that it keeps a cache over recently made comparisons.
# File: cmpcache-example-1.py import cmpcache if cmpcache.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In Python 2.0 and later, this module has been replaced by the filecmp module.
