If you just want to compare two files (and no n-way comparisons) File::Compare can be much faster than calculating a hash because it can abort at the first difference, while the hash algorithm always has to go through both files entirely.

[stevieb]: I went on my merry way writing a cross-platform, network-aware system that works across Perlbrew and Berrybrew systems and runs unit tests for Perl dists on all installed versions, with the ability to manage *brew commands themselves
[stevieb]: That worked out exceptionally well, as when I started that project, I hadn't delved into hardware development yet.
[stevieb]: found a issue in MetaCPAN::Client though today for my revdep tests. At least I think it's an issue
[stevieb]: I'm working on hiding the fact the software needs MetaCPAN::Client, as I often have a hell of a time installing it. I'm going to change it to let the user know if they do revdep that it needs to be installed, and remove that distribution ..
