Dear all, 

I am trying to compare the contents of two binary files. I use python 3.6 
filecomp comparing same name files inside two directories.

results_dummy=filecmp.cmpfiles(dir1, dir2, common, shallow=True)

The above line works for *.bin file I have in both directories, but it does not 
work with h5 files.

When comparing two hdf5 files that contain exactly the same groups/datasets and 
numerical data, filecmp.cmpfiles finds them as mismatch. My hdf files are not 
binary equal but contain the same exact data. 

Is there anyway to compare the contents of two hdf5 files from within Python 
script and without using h5diff?

Thanks in Advance,
