Disclosed is a program to compare two topology files which represent either a 9370 or 9406 multi-rack processor configuration. TOPCOMP is used in the verification of the Hardware Placement and Connection Service (IIPCS) which produces the topology file representation. Verification consists of comparing a topology created by an earlier version of IIPCS that has been previously validated with one from the version under development.
