fastcompare file1 file2
fastcompare is designed to compare line-based content (order doesn’t matter) of very large ASCII files.
For the 1st file, it will generate
crc32 hashes for each line (so it is more memory efficient when you take the smaller file as the 1st file. But this has no affect on the speed).
Now it will iterate over the 2nd file, build a temporary
crc32 hash and do a binary search in the hash array.
