       smidiff - check differences between a pair of SMI or SPPI modules


       smidiff  [  -Vhsm  ] [ -c file ] [ -l level ] [ -i error-pattern ] [ -p
       module ] oldmodule newmodule


       The smidiff program is used to check differences between a pair of  SMI
       MIB  modules  or  SPPI  PIB  modules.   E.g.,  it can be used to detect
       changes in updated MIB modules that can cause interoperability problems
       with  existing implementations. SMIv1/v2 and SPPI style MIB/PIB modules
       are supported.

       Note that conformance statements are currently not checked.

       Messages describing the differences are written to the standard  output
       channel  while  error  and warning messages generated by the parser are
       written to the standard error channel.


       -V, --version
              Show the smidump version and exit.

       -h, --help
              Show a help text and exit.

       -s, --severity
              Show the error severity in brackets before error messages.

       -m, --error-names
              Show the error names in braces before error messages.

       -c file, --config=file
              Read file instead of any other (global and  user)  configuration

       -p module, --preload=module
              Preload  the  module  module  before reading the main module(s).
              This may be helpful if  an  incomplete  main  module  misses  to
              import some definitions.

       -l level, --level=level
              Report  errors  and warnings up to the given severity level. See
              the smilint(1) manual page for a description of the  error  lev-
              els. The default error level is 3.

       -i prefix, --ignore=prefix
              Ignore all errors that have a tag which matches prefix.

              The original module.

              The updated module.

       If  a  module argument represents a path name (identified by containing
       at least one dot or slash character), this is assumed to be  the  exact
       file  to read. Otherwise, if a module is identified by its plain module
       name, it is searched according to libsmi internal rules.  See  smi_con-
       fig(3) for more details.
