gzcmp


NAME
     gzcmp, gzdiff - compare compressed files

SYNOPSIS
     gzcmp [ cmp_options ] file1 [ file2 ]
     gzdiff [ diff_options ] file1 [ file2 ]

DESCRIPTION
     Gzcmp and gzdiff are used to invoke the cmp or the diff pro-
     gram  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), gzmore(1), gzgrep(1), gznew(1), gzforce(1),
     gzip(1), gzexe(1)

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