compare-windows - Compare buffer windows, ignore whitespace.
compare-windows-exact - Compare buffer windows, with whitespace.
compare-windows compares the textural content of ALL the current windows from their current cursor position. These commands are generally used to locate the next difference in the windows displayed. Returns TRUE if the buffers of the windows do not differ from the current position to the end of the file (inclusive), else returns FALSE setting the cursor of each buffer to the first point of difference.
The default mode of operation ignores white-space, a numeric argument n of zero (0) then an exact white-space match is performed.
compare-windows-exact is a macro short cut for 0 compare-windows, forcing a white space comparison.
