Comparing 2 object code files

Comparing 2 object code files

Comparing 2 object code files

I took 2 exactly same C files, gave a diff name to each

eg. of C code.
int i,j,k=0;
return 0;

now i compiled these with "cc -c" option and compared the obj files with "diff" and "cmp" utilities in linux and i got different answers.

what can be the reason for this?


RE: Comparing 2 object code files

were both files compiled with the same compiler? if different each compiler adds on its own baggage that is different to the other.

maybe on of your programs may have a bug?

how were the answers different?
