Hello Sam,

1.  Talk to Source Retrieval at www.SourceRetrieval.com (513) 458-4202.

2.  CMPPFM should be able to do this.  I am not aware of any limitations in 
record length.  Also News/400 
published a comparison tool which may help.  Check www.news400.com

3.  The only way I know to compare spooled files is to copy them to a database 
file first.  CPYSPLF and then 
run either CMPPFM or your own program.  I wrote one some time ago but it is not 
in a fit state to provide.

Simon Coulter.
