 * This class copies a POI file system to a new file and compares the copy
 * with the original.
 * <p>
 * Property set streams are copied logically, i.e. the application
 * establishes a {@link org.apache.poi.hpsf.PropertySet} of an original property
 * set, creates a {@link org.apache.poi.hpsf.PropertySet} and writes the
 * {@link org.apache.poi.hpsf.PropertySet} to the destination POI file
 * system. - Streams which are no property set streams are copied bit by
 * bit.
 * <p>
 * The comparison of the POI file systems is done logically. That means that
 * the two disk files containing the POI file systems do not need to be
 * exactly identical. However, both POI file systems must contain the same
 * files, and most of these files must be bitwise identical. Property set
 * streams, however, are compared logically: they must have the same sections
 * with the same attributes, and the sections must contain the same properties.
 * Details like the ordering of the properties do not matter.
public final class CopyCompare {

     * Runs the example program. The application expects one or two arguments:
     * <ol>
     * <li>The first argument is the disk file name of the POI filesystem to copy.</li>
     * <li>The second argument is optional. If it is given, it is the name of
     * a disk file the copy of the POI filesystem will be written to. If it is
     * not given, the copy will be written to a temporary file which will be
     * deleted at the end of the program.</li>
     * </ol>
     * @param args Command-line arguments.
     * @throws IOException                  if any I/O exception occurs.
     * @throws UnsupportedEncodingException if a character encoding is not
     *                                      supported.
