NAME

       zcmp, zdiff - compare compressed files


SYNOPSIS

       zcmp [ cmp_options ] file1 [ file2 ]
       zdiff [ diff_options ] file1 [ file2 ]


DESCRIPTION

       Zcmp  and  zdiff are used to invoke the cmp or the diff program on com-
       pressed files.  All options specified are passed  directly  to  cmp  or
       diff.   If  only 1 file is specified, then the files compared are file1
       and an uncompressed file1.gz.  If two files are  specified,  then  they
       are  uncompressed if necessary and fed to cmp or diff.  The exit status
       from cmp or diff is preserved.


SEE ALSO

       cmp(1),  diff(1),  zmore(1),  zgrep(1),  znew(1),  zforce(1),  gzip(1),
       gzexe(1)


BUGS

       Messages  from  the  cmp  or diff programs refer to temporary filenames
       instead of those specified.
