       diffmon [options]


       This manual page documents briefly the diffmon command.

       two dashes (`-').  A summary of options is included below.

       -c, --config-file FILE
              Use FILE as the config file instead of the default, searching DIFFMONPATH  if  FILE
              not absolute pathname.

       -e, --errors-to MAINTAINER
              Stderr  is reported to maintainer via email.  If MAINTAINER is set to "maintainer",
