The ppcomp program is used to compare two files. It is most useful in post-processing to compare the concatenated text file downloaded from DP at the start of PPing to the final text file at the end of PPing before it is uploaded to Project Gutenberg. The user provides two files to compare. Each file can be text or HTML. The user then clicks Submit, waits for the test to run and then downloads or views the results file.
