Maybe someone could answer this question, I have called adobe several times and they couldn't answer my question.

We want to make an application that will automate the compare process in adobe acrobat 6. So basically I need to know if in the sdk(software development kit) there is a function to compare 2 files, where you would pass both file names to compare and then it would return the compare result in another file. In other words it would do exactly the same thing as if you would do the compare command in adobe acrobat 6. The difference is that it would work as a stand alone application. So the question is, is there a compare function in the sdk that i can use to code my application in vb or c.

At the moment I'm working on this by doing sendkeys which works, but that's not the best solution.
