Looking for a script to compare 3 text files and run a command in case they match

Hi,
I'm looking for a script (could be vb\power shell\batch) to compare between 3 text files, they only have a numeric value in them, in case all files match, then run a command

Any advise please?

Here's a simple way to do it with just a BAT file script.

@echo off
setlocal

set File1=file1.txt
set File2=file2.txt
set File3=file3.txt

if not exist "%File1%" exit /b
if not exist "%File2%" exit /b
if not exist "%File3%" exit /b

fc "%File1%" "%File2%" >NUL && (
  fc "%File1%" "%File3%" >NUL && (
    echo Files match!
    REM run your command here
  )
)

Open in new window
