mcomp

Compares two files using mtools

mcomp file-on-floppy local-file

mcomp 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.
