Tool for comparing 2 binary files in Windows


Question

I need a tool to compare 2 binaries. The files are quite large. Some freeware or trial tools I found on the Internet are not convenient to use for large files. Can you recommend me some tools?

Total Commander also has a binary compare option: go to: File \\Compare by content

ps. I guess some people may alredy be using this tool and may not be aware of the built-in feature.

My favorite "swiss knife" Beyond Compare from http://www.scootersoftware.com/

In Cygwin:

$cmp -bl <file1> <file2>

diffs binary offsets and values are in decimal and octal respectively.. Vladi.

I prefer to use objcopy to convert to hex, then use diff.

I think hexcmp is instant & easy to use

It is a gui app compared to those command-line, very easy to use yet quite powerful feature-wise. It should be useful for beginners & passing users.

HexCmp HexCmp is a visual binary file compare application and easy-to-use hex editor. It can help you to compare two files as a binary raw quickly and easily. ($29.95)
