In this Technical Report, further results of the program compareFinRaw are presented. compareFinRaw is a tool that is particularly useful for comparing large data sets. It is typically used to compare different releases of the same data. In this example, we compare two different releases of the project DemoDiff. To be more precise, we compare the nine revised files of DemoDiff release 3.1 with the older release 3.0 files. It should provide users of the DemoDiff data a comprehensive overview on all manipulations of the data that have occurred from release 3.0 to release 3.1.
