The cmp Module

(Obsolete, Only in 1.5.2) The cmp module contains a function to compare two files, as Example 14-19 demonstrates.

Example 14-19. Using the cmp Module

import cmp

if cmp.cmp("samples/", "samples/sample.wav"):
 print "files are identical"
 print "files differ!"

files differ!

In Python 2.0 and later, this module has been replaced by the filecmp module.
