Compare 1.0

A simple shell program that compares the contents of two files reporting
whether they are the same or not.

The advantage of this program over other such programs is that it reports
back the error codes, as follows:

OK - The files are the same
WARN - The files are not the same
ERROR - Could not load the files
FATAL - Memory failure

Therefore simply scripts can be formulated, i.e.:

.key f1,f2

compare <f1> <f2> QUIET
if warn
	echo "Files are not the same"
	; do stuff
else
	echo "Files are the same
	; do other stuff
endif


Arguments are straigtforward enough:

	compare {first file} {second file} [QUIET]

2 args are compulsory, the third (quiet), can be excluded.  Quiet allows
the program to operate on a purely script basis whilst omitting this
will cause Compare to report on various things.

Source included.  This program is hereby released into the public domain
- no warranties or guarantees are held with this program you may do with
it, the source and any accompanying files what you will.
