That's what ediff-buffers is for.

Maybe ediff should have a option whether ediff-files visits the files
and runs ediff-buffers, or retains its original behavior.

Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the bug-gnu-emacs@HIDDEN mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:


If I do

  M-x ediff-files RET

and choose binary files, e.g. x.png and x.jpg, this is, what I see in
the `*ediff*' buffer (no indentation):=20

  Bin\303\244rdateien /home/sebastian/x.png and /home/sebastian/x.jpg sind =
verschieden.


What I expect to see is:

  Bin=C3=A4rdateien /home/sebastian/x.png and /home/sebastian/x.jpg sind ve=
rschieden.



What I'd prefer even more, would be `ediff' to load those two files two
different buffers, put those buffers in hexl-mode and diff them.

Before `ediff' does this, it should ask (maybe ask only, if the two
files or one of them exceeds a certain size).









If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
If you would like to further debug the crash, please read the file
/usr/local/share/emacs/23.1/etc/DEBUG for instructions.
