in reply to Comparing large files

Hmm, not that easy... If your files are 10 MB or probably even 100 MB, then hash lookup is definitely the best solution. If your files are dozens of GB, then sorting them to compare them is the only solution I can think of. Between these two sizes, it is your draw.

[holli]: nice. i never thought of hosting a script on the site
[LanX]: It's not a perfect solution, since it means invoking the monastery several times, but IMHO still better than hosting on another server
[holli]: i'm surprised it even executes. the server sends text/plain AND a content-dispositio n header
[holli]: this really really should not be executed as Javascript
