xzdiff(1)                           XZ Utils                           xzdiff(1)


       xzcmp, xzdiff, lzcmp, lzdiff - compare compressed files


       xzcmp [cmp_options] file1 [file2]
       xzdiff [diff_options] file1 [file2]
       lzcmp [cmp_options] file1 [file2]
       lzdiff [diff_options] file1 [file2]


       xzcmp and xzdiff invoke cmp(1) or diff(1) on files compressed with xz(1),
       lzma(1), gzip(1), bzip2(1), lzop(1), or zstd(1).  All options specified
       are passed directly to cmp(1) or diff(1).  If only one file is specified,
       then the files compared are file1 (which must have a suffix of a
       supported compression format) and file1 from which the compression format
       suffix has been stripped.  If two files are specified, then they are
       uncompressed if necessary and fed to cmp(1) or diff(1).  The exit status
       from cmp(1) or diff(1) is preserved unless a decompression error occurs;
       then exit status is 2.

       The names lzcmp and lzdiff are provided for backward compatibility with
       LZMA Utils.

       Messages from the cmp(1) or diff(1) programs refer to temporary filenames
       instead of those specified.
