ZDIFF(1)		    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 com-
       pressed 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 in-
       stead of	those specified.
