assertFilesEqual(filename1, filename2, user_message)
function assertFilesEqual(filename1, filename2, user_message)
%assertFilesEqual Assert that files contain the same contents.
%   assertFilesEqual(filename1, filename2) throws an exception if the two
%   specified files do not contain the same contents.
%
%   assertFilesEqual(filename1, filename2, message) prepends the specified
%   message string to the assertion message.
