comparing the contents of two folders in different paths in Matlab

timer Asked: Mar 19th, 2016

Question description


I am trying to refactor and existing Matlab Model that generates a tgz file that contains a .mat, .m, .txt and .ddf file.

I have the original Model called MATESOld, I have a created a new model called MATESNew where I will do the refactoring and compare with MATESOld to ensure that the functionalities are the same..


The first step is to design a test, that will compare the files of the tgz generated by MATESOld and MATESNew.

To implement the design of a function to compare two tgz files generated by execution of MATES, the following steps are considered

·  Add the path of the original MATES (MATESOld)

·  Execute the test to generate reference tgz file

·  Remove the added path

·  Add the path of the MATES to be refactored (MATESNew)

·  Execute the test to generate test tgz file

·  Compare the tgz files generated in the path of both MATESOld and MATESNew

o  If files are the same, do not give any message

o  If files are different, give a message with the lines that are different in the in the files in both tgz files

·  Display or report comparison results


I have a system that generate two tgz files and store one in a folder MATESOld and MATESNew respectively. I want to compare the contents of the two tgz files.

They have a file which takes the path of MATESOld and MATESNew respectively. When compared, it shows that this file in both tgz files are different because of MATESNew and MATESOld in the two paths.

I wish to compare files in the tgz such that the file that takes the paths of MATESOld and MATESNew should take a common path for MATESOld and MATESNew and when the files are compared. it should show that the files are the same.


To create a new path where the tgz files generated from the paths MATESOld and MATESNew, should be sent to a new path, MATESpath.

The files are the compared from the path of MATESpath.

I don't know if this will work. I have attached here a code I started writing for this assignment. You will have to modify the file compare2MATES which is found in the path

·  Write xUnit Matlab test for the test function above
