mne.viz.compare_fiff(fname_1, fname_2, fname_out=None, show=True, indent='    ', read_limit=inf, max_str=30, verbose=None)[source]

Compare the contents of two fiff files using diff and show_fiff.

Parameters
fname_1str

First file to compare.

fname_2str

Second file to compare.

fname_outstr | None

Filename to store the resulting diff. If None, a temporary file will be created.

verbosebool | str | int | None

If not None, override default verbose level (see mne.verbose() and Logging documentation for more). If used, it should be passed as a keyword-argument only.

Returns
fname_outstr

The filename used for storing the diff. Could be useful for when a temporary file is used.
