I’ve been using File.compare to see if two files are the same, but now i
have the case where one is a renamed copy of the other. I’d like to
treat these two as the same in this case. Can anyone suggest a test
that doesn’t care about names?
The files that have been renamed are xml (ie text format) if that makes
life easier but a solution that works with binaries as well would be
I’ve been trying to google checksums in ruby but haven’t seen a useful
example, maybe i was just being blind. Will a checksum ignore the name
of the file?
