Posts tagged How to find if my file is uploaded or downloaded properly or not
The standard “diff” command can be used to find if two binary files differ from each other or not. The following example shows how to do it.
[neo@techpulp ~]# diff file1.bin file2.bin Binary files file1.bin and file2.bin differ [neo@techpulp ~]#
Another way to find that out is to compute MD5 digest on both files and see if they match. MD5 is an cryptographic algorithm which computes an unique digest for each file. The both files are same if the MD5 digests of both files match and otherwise they differ. The “md5sum” command can be used to compute MD5 digest.
