You sure about that ? What's the point in having a custom differ then ? If the check-for-difference is done internally (presumably byte-for-byte), then why is a custom differ mandated to return a 0/1/fail code, if it will never be used to check that files *are* different.

How come I see custom differs for word etc files all over the place ? I was under the impression that these differs only looked at "stuff that has really changed" in the file, and their raison d'ĂȘtre was to ignore the crap that Microsoft (and others) insist on writing to files (such as "last time read").
