smart binary files comparison


Hello, on windows one can compare two wav files using EAC's "WAV compare" feature.
It acts like a smarter cmp, by automatically detecting possible offsets and reporting smart differences, always auto-resyncing.
In other words, it understands when the compared files have small differences and report them, rather than aborting and stopping comparison at first difference.

It is very useful to assess the results of a digital audio extraction, for example, and for other purposes, I guess.

Does anybody know of similar software for linux? Maybe there exists something even though not specifically addressed to wavs, that I didn't find of on google.
Better if gpl'd.
Thanks for your attention.

There are tools designed to diff binary files, like bsdiff and xdelta, I am not sure they will help for your purpose though.

Thanks, I've checked them out, but I tried this with better success:

http://wava.sourceforge.net/

The precompiled programs seems to comply with requests, although sources are bitchy to compile at a first try, and I'd like non-graphical output.

Any other finds?
