Karger78 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I need some help trying to figure out how I am going to do a file comparison. Here is what my script does.
It goes to a log share, files the files associated to a certin case number, load's it into an array. Then it appends a time stampt to the name of the files, then copies it over to a local PC path along with a network share path. What I would like to do is compare the orignal file against the file that was copied over to the network path to ensure the files were actually copied over for error checking, then after the file check is complete, remove the files off the submission site. This is check is nescarry and critial before removing the orignal files off the submission share.
Does anyone have a good suggestion on how I could do a comparison between files even though the file name as changed. The file size is the same. I had an idea of bit by bit comparison, or somthing of that nature. Any ideas?
