comparing files...

are there any commands that can compare two files? Comparing in the sense that the two files are alike... Because I wrote a program that makes a backup file of another file... Just want to know if the files are the same...

hope somebody can help me....

You mean function then rather than command?

fc is a command and runs at the DOS command line.

There is no function to do anything similar.
