FTIMES-CMP2DIFF(1)	     FTimes Documentation	    FTIMES-CMP2DIFF(1)

NAME
       ftimes-cmp2diff - Display diff-like results of an FTimes	comparison

SYNOPSIS
       ftimes-cmp2diff [-c {compare|-}]	[-e field[,field[,...]]] [-f format]
       [-m mask] [-o option[,option[,...]]] -b baseline	-s snapshot

DESCRIPTION
       This utility takes baseline and snapshot	map files as input, compares
       them using a specified or derived field mask, and displays the results
       in a diff-like format.  This allows the user to see the details about
       what fields changed and how.

OPTIONS
       -b baseline
	   Specifies the name of an FTimes baseline map	file.

       -c {compare|-}
	   Specifies the name of an FTimes compare file	produced by comparing
	   the snapshot	to the baseline.  A value of '-' will cause the
	   program to read from	stdin.

       -e field[,field[,...]]
	   Specified a list of map fields to ignore.  No differences will be
	   displayed for fields	in this	list.

       -f format
	   Specifies the type of diff format to	display.  The format can be
	   one of {f|field}, {l|long}, or {s|short}.  The default value	is
	   'short'.

       -m mask
	   Specifies the field mask to use when	generating output.

       -o option,[option[,...]]
	   Specifies the list of options to apply.  Currently, the following
	   options are supported:

	   ForceBuild
	       Force the decoding of map files and creation of offsets files
	       even if they already exist.

	   ForceClean
	       Remove decoded map and offsets files upon program completion.

	   ModeDecode
	       Converts	the mode field into a standard UNIX representation
	       (e.g., '-rwxr-xr-x').

	   NoDecode
	       Do not decode the map files (i.e., assume that the baseline and
	       snapshot	are already decoded).

	       Note: If	you enable this	option and fail	to specify decoded map
	       files, don't expect valid results.

	   UseBigIntegers
	       Activate	and use	the Math::BigInt module	for handling offset
	       conversions.  Generally,	this option should only	be used	for
	       backwards compatibility on 32-bit platforms.  Enabling this
	       option will impact performance, so use it only when necessary.

       -s snapshot
	   Specifies the name of an FTimes snapshot map	file.

	   Note: While not strictly required, it's best	if the field mask used
	   when	taking the snapshot matches the	one used to create the
	   baseline.
