dircmp


NAME
     dircmp - directory comparison

SYNOPSIS
     dircmp [-ds] [-w n] dir1 dir2

DESCRIPTION
     The dircmp command examines  dir1  and  dir2  and  generates
     various  tabulated  information  about  the  contents of the
     directories. Listings of  files  that  are  unique  to  each
     directory are generated for all the options. If no option is
     entered, a list is output indicating whether the file  names
     common to both directories have the same contents.

OPTIONS
     The following options are supported:

     -d       Compares the contents of files with the  same  name
              in  both directories and output a list telling what
              must be changed in the two files to bring them into
              agreement. The list format is described in diff(1).



     -s       Suppresses messages about identical files.



     -w n     Changes the width of the output line to  n  charac-
              ters. The default width is  72.



OPERANDS
     The following operands are supported:

     dir1     A path name of a directory to be compared.
     dir2

     See largefile(5) for the  description  of  the  behavior  of
     dircmp  when  encountering  files greater than or equal to 2
     Gbyte ( 2**31bytes).
