This program compares two files byte-by-byte with progress
indicator for files longer than 64 kB and report of all
differences. It works much faster than standard MSDOS utilities
(COMP.EXE ÷2.7 times and FC.EXE ÷6.5 times) or up to 100 kB/sec.
on my AT 286-8 and it is independent of DOS version. It accepts
files of different sizes and redirection of output ( >report.txt ).

Switches: ONLY if you specify both filenames in command line,

/HI - inhibit hexadecimal report of files size and offset.
/DI - inhibit decimal report of files size and offset.
use ONLY one of them as third parameter in command line.

Examples of usage: COMPF file1.ext file2.ext
COMPF file1.ext file2.ext /DI
COMPF file1.ext file2.ext /HI

Original COMPF.ZIP archive contains 3 files:

COMPF .EXE - main module
COMPF .DOC - this documentation
CRC .DOC - PKZIP report for previous 2 files: CHECK CRC-32!

Copying and redistribution is encouraged, but must be the
original, unmodified .ZIP file containing this documentation.

This is SHAREWARE. If you intend to use this program after
evaluation, please send me three dollars for registration.
Form for registration included. I will accept any suggestions
and comments about COMPF. Thanks.

Cost ( U.S. Funds, no credit cards ): $3 <=> registration

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
