ZDIFF(1)                FreeBSD General Commands Manual               ZDIFF(1)

NAME
       zcmp, zdiff - compare compressed files

SYNOPSIS
       zcmp [ cmp_options ] file1 [ file2 ]
       zdiff [ diff_options ] file1 [ file2 ]

DESCRIPTION
       Zcmp and zdiff 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
       cmp(1), diff(1), zmore(1), zgrep(1), znew(1), zforce(1), gzip(1),
       gzexe(1)

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

                                                                      ZDIFF(1)
