compare two dlls

I need to know if their is any changes between two .DLL files (with the same name but without version...).
I can't compare by the 'time stamp' because always that i compile the dlls, it will change

how to compare dlls

you can use hex editor for that. You can try HexWorkshop. It has a trial version http://www.hexworkshop.com/. Or, if you want more features, you can use disassembler to compare the internals, if you know what "interfaces" changes (i.e. exported functions) within those DLLs. You might want to try the best disassembler I've ever known: IDA Pro. There's a freeware version at http://www.dirfile.com/ida_pro_freeware_version.htm. But, beware that it's not so easy to use IDA Pro. It's advanced tools. Only for expert.
