The cmpcache Module

(Obsolete, Only in 1.5.2) The cmpcache module contains a function that compares two files. Its an extension of the cmp module in that it keeps a cache over recently made comparisons. Example 14-20 shows the modules use.

Example 14-20. Using the cmpcache Module
File: cmpcache-example-1.py

import cmpcache

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

files differ!

In Python 2.0 and later, this module has been replaced by the filecmp module.
