Hi All,

I was of the opinion that all files including executables can be renamed.
Hoping this is true, Is there a sleek way in UNIX to find if the two files are
the same. One thing that comes to my mind is to write a program in C to
read both the binaries and comparing. The other simpler alternative is to
use scripting, I don't think we will be stretched to use Python Or Perl.
But Awk/Sed etc.

Would love to get a feedback.
