How close.

Identical EXCEPT ....
We need to be able to supply the two files to compare and a definition of the acceptably mismatched lines.
For example, a typical ASCII Factor Base has a line or two that contain information about where and when the file was generated. I'm happy to simply skip the matching of those 2 or 3 lines. If it is necessary to go to a full programming language, I'd probably suggest Perl. But I prefer to avoid that dependency.
