compare files whose lines have been broken


Example, first file :
1234 56asdfh asdfauiiiiiiil asdf

Second file :

1234 56asdfh

I would like to compare these two files and find no difference. I want to ignore all the breaking lines
Is there a command or a tool that can do that ? I want to use it in a batch file.
Thanks :)
