BZDIFF(1)                   General Commands Manual                  BZDIFF(1)



NAME
       bzcmp, bzdiff - compare bzip2 compressed files

SYNOPSIS
       bzcmp [ cmp_options ] file1 [ file2 ]
       bzdiff [ diff_options ] file1 [ file2 ]

DESCRIPTION
       Bzcmp and bzdiff are used to invoke the cmp or the diff program on
       bzip2 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.bz2.  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), bzmore(1), bzless(1), bzgrep(1), bzip2(1)

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