diffoscope - in-depth comparison of files, archives, and directories
diffoscope --help diffoscope [OPTIONS] [--json output_diff] path1 path2 diffoscope [OPTIONS] diff diffoscope [OPTIONS] < diff
Exit status is 0 if inputs are the same, 1 if different, 2 if trouble.
To compare two files in-depth and produce an HTML report, run something like: $ diffoscope --html output.html build1.changes build2.changes diffoscope will exit with 0 if there's no differences and 1 if there are. diffoscope can also compare non-existent files: $ diffoscope /nonexistent archive.zip To get all possible options, run: $ diffoscope --help If you have enough RAM, you can improve performance by running: $ TMPDIR=/run/shm diffoscope very-big-input-0/ very-big-input-1/ By default this allowed to use up half of RAM; for more add something like: tmpfs /run/shm tmpfs size=80% 0 0 to your /etc/fstab; see man mount for details.
diffoscope requires Python 3 and the following modules available on PyPI: libarchive-c, python-magic. The various comparators rely on external commands being available. To get a list of them, please run: $ diffoscope --list-tools
