       TarDiff - Compare two tarballs and report differences


       TarDiff compares the contents of two tarballs and reports on any differences found between
       them. Its use is mainly for release managers who can use it as a QA tool to make  sure  no
       files  have  accidentally  been  left  over  or  were  added  by mistake. TarDiff supports
       compressed tarballs, diff statistics and suppression of GNU autotool changes.


       tardiff [options] file1.tar file2.tar[.gz/.bz2]


       -m, --modified Report on all changed files, including those present in both tarballs
       -l, --list     List all files, even those not changed at all
       -a, --autoskip Skip files which belong to the GNU autotools (for --modified)
       -s, --stats    Run statistics (diffstat) on all modified files (for --modified)
       -v, --version  Display tardiff version
       -h, --help     Display this help screen
