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.
