FILCOM compares two files in either ASCII mode or binary depending
upon switches or file name extensions. All standard binary extensions
are recognized as binary by default.

*output dev:file.exe [directory] = input dev(1):file.ext [directory],
                                   input dev(2):file.ext [directory]

	output dev:	=  the device on which the differences are to be output.

	input dev:	=  the device on which an input file resides.
