    Executable files different even when same files compiled from different paths


    I'm trying to find a solution for a while; I hope I can find it here.

    I don't understand why if I'm compiling (with make file) on the same machine with the same user, I get executable file which is binary different.

    The only difference between to compilations is the path of the directory in UNIX. The files are identical.

    Does someone know why they are different?
    My goal is to know if the executables are identical or if there were some changes in files and this is why the executables are different.

    Thanks you in advance,

    Can you be more clear about your doubt.

    trying to explain


    I'm compiling directory.
    Let's say
    I'll get executable name "file_exec"

    I'll do the same in
    I'll get executable name "file_exec"

    Files in "temp_dir5" and "temp_file1" are the same.
    If I'll do binary diff of the executables, they will be different in more then compilation date.

    The question is why they are different?

    Hope that ws more clear
    Thanks again
