GZDIFF(1)							     GZDIFF(1)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     gzcmp, gzdiff - compare compressed	files

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     gzcmp [ cmp_options ] file1 [ file2 ]
     gzdiff [ diff_options ] file1 [ file2 ]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     Gzcmp and gzdiff are used to invoke the cmp or the	diff program on
     compressed	files.	All options specified are passed directly to cmp or
     diff.  If only 1 file is specified, then the files	compared are file1 and
     an	uncompressed file1.gz.	If two files are specified, then they are
     uncompressed if necessary and fed to cmp or diff.	The exit status	from
     cmp or diff is preserved.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     cmp(1), diff(1), gzmore(1), gzgrep(1), gznew(1), gzforce(1), gzip(1),

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     Messages from the cmp or diff programs refer to temporary filenames
     instead of	those specified.
