       slack-diff - compare file contents, modes, etc


       slack-diff [OPTION]... FILE1 FILE2


       A wrapper for diff that displays file modes and other metadata changes.

       -u  -U NUM  --unified[=NUM]
              Tell diff(1) to use unified output format.

       --diff PROG
              Use this program for diffing, instead of diff.

              Make  a  fake  diff  for  file  modes  and other things that are not file contents.
              Default is on, can be disabled with --nofakediff.

       -r  --recursive
              Recursively compare any subdirectories found.

       -N  --new-file
              Treat missing files as empty.  Default is on, can be disabled with --nonew-file.

              Treat only missing files in the first directory as empty.

              Treat arguments as a list of files from which to read  filenames  to  compare,  two
              lines at a time.

       -0  --null
              Use NULLs instead of newlines as the separator in --from-file mode.

              You  have  a version of diff that can't deal with -N when not in recursive mode, so
              we need to feed it /dev/null instead of the missing file.  Default is  on,  can  be
              disabled with --nodevnullhack.

              Output version info.

       --help Output this help.

       FILES  are `FILE1 FILE2' or `DIR1 DIR2' or `DIR FILE...' or `FILE... DIR'.  If --from-file
       or --to-file is given, there are no restrictions  on  FILES.   If  a  FILE  is  `-',  read
       standard input.
