No actions delta file.

Hi,
I have file F10 in computer A, and file F11 in computer B.
I send a signatufe file of A from computer A to computer B in order that 
computer B generates a delta file and sent it backup to computer A to 
regenerate file F11 using the basis file F10.

If files F10 and F11 are the same in contents, how may I know it looking at 
the generated delta file ?
Is the delta file 0 bytes length ?
Any other propierty I can look into the delta file to know that files F10 an 
F11 are the same ?

Greetings.

No. It will be very short though, as it should contain only a single
"copy" command.

The signatures will be identical.

Probably a better/safer way to check this is to compare the whole-file
md5sum though.

Do you know where could I get documentation about the generated rsync delta 
file, in order to discover this single "copy" command ?

It is more efficient if I examine the generated delta file to see that it 
contains a single "copy" command than generate another signature file or a 
md5sum ;-)
