What is the difference between corn flour and corn meal?


I purchased some 100% stone ground whole grain corn flour.  I made some decent Breads with this as one of the ingredients.  My question is:


What is the differenct between corn flour and corn meal?  How different would my Breads have been, had I used the same amount of corn meal, instead of corn flour?


 


Thanks

Flour and meal are the same thing, only flour is ground finer than meal.  Not sure on how using one from the other would make different differences
