       kompare - a KDE GUI for viewing differences between files


       kompare [ generic-options ]
       kompare [ generic-options ] [ -c ] URL1 URL2
       kompare [ generic-options ] [ -o [ -n ]] diff
       kompare [ generic-options ] -b URL diff


       Kompare  is  a graphical user interface for viewing the differences between two files.  It
       will also optionally create a diff file.

       Depending upon what is passed on the command line, Kompare can compare documents,  display
       diff files and blend diff files back into original documents.

       If an url is given as - then Kompare will read the corresponding file from standard input.
       Thus (for instance) Kompare can be used as:

              cvs diff | kompare -o -

       This utility is part of the KDE Software Development Kit.


       Below are the kompare-specific options.  For  a  full  summary  of  options,  run  kompare

       -b URL diff
              Blends  diff  into  URL.   diff  is  expected to be diff output and URL the file or
              folder that the diff output needs to be blended into.

       -c URL1 URL2
              Compares URL1 with URL2.  This is the default mode if two URLs are passed.

       -n     Used with -o to stop Kompare from checking for the original file.

       -o diff
              Opens the given diff file.  This is the default mode if only one URL is passed.
              Kompare will check to see if it can find the original file(s).  If it can, it  will
              blend  the original file(s) into the diff output and show the result in the viewer.
              Passing -n will disable this check.
