Need vbscript to compare text files

I need a vbscript to compare a text file with a list of serial numbers as follows:

Textfile1
12345
23456
23457

and

Textfile2
12345
23456
etc...

If they are equal then exit
if they are Not equal then i will send and e-mail ( i have the e-mail script)

One list will be the constant, and the other will warn of changes.

how about a compare textfile function below
public function comparetextfile(byval srcfilename as string,byval desfilename as string) as bool
{
      Try
            ' Create an instance of StreamReader to read from a file.
            Dim srcsr As StreamReader = New StreamReader(srcfilename)
            Dim dessr As StreamReader = New StreamReader(desfilename)
            Dim linesrc As String,linedes as string
            Do
                linesrc = sr.ReadLine()
                linedes=sr.readline()
                if(linesrc!=linedes) Exit do
            Loop Until linesrc Is Nothing or linedes is nothing
            srcsr.close()
            dessr.Close()
            if(linesrc is nothing and linedes is nothing) return true;
            return false;
        Catch E As Exception
            ' Let the user know what went wrong.
            Console.WriteLine("The file could not be read:")
            Console.WriteLine(E.Message)
        End Try
        return false
}
