Faster implementation of 'cmp'

'Compare' is similar to cmp (in the 'diffutils' package) but faster and with better readable output. It examines one file and standard in (or two files on a byte by byte basis) and prints the file position of the first difference it finds, first in decimal and then in hexadecimal, followed by the differing byte content in hexadecimal and a quoted character.
