NAME

       diffoscope - in-depth comparison of files, archives, and directories

SYNOPSIS

          diffoscope   [-h]  [--version]  [--debug]  [--html  output]  [--text
          output] [--max-report-size bytes] [--css url] file1 file2

DESCRIPTION

       diffoscope will try to get  to  the  bottom  of  what  makes  files  or
       directories  different.  It  will  recursively  unpack archives of many
       kinds and transform various binary formats  into  more  human  readable
       form  to  compare them. It can compare two tarballs, ISO images, or PDF
       just as easily.

       It can be scripted through error codes, and a report  can  be  produced
       with the detected differences. The report can be text or HTML.  When no
       type of report has been selected, diffoscope defaults to write  a  text
       report on the standard output.

       diffoscope  is  developed  as  part of the “reproducible builds” Debian
       project and was formerly known as “debbindiff”.
