NAME

mcomp – Compares two files using mtools

SYNOPSIS

mcomp file-on-floppy local-file

DESCRIPTION

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 program provides the same capa‐
bility 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.

AUTHOR
