Load file from stream

In case when you have the file in the form of a stream. To avoid the overhead of saving stream as a file on disk, GroupDocs.Comparison provides a way to work with file streams directly.

The following are the steps to be followed:

  • Obtain file stream;
  • Pass opened source file stream to Comparer class constructor or pass opened target file stream to Add method.

Following code snippet describes how to load file from stream.

using (Stream sourceStream = File.OpenRead("source.docx"))
using (Stream targetStream = File.OpenRead("target.docx"))
{
	using (Comparer comparer = new Comparer(sourceStream))
	{
	    comparer.Add(targetStream);
    	comparer.Compare(File.Create("result.docx"));
	}
}
