XZDIFF(1)			   XZ Utils			     XZDIFF(1)

       xzcmp, xzdiff, lzcmp, lzdiff - compare compressed files

       xzcmp [cmp_options] file1 [file2]
       xzdiff [diff_options] file1 [file2]
       lzcmp [cmp_options] file1 [file2]
       lzdiff [diff_options] file1 [file2]

       xzcmp  and  xzdiff  invoke  cmp(1)  or diff(1) on files compressed with
       xz(1), lzma(1), gzip(1), or bzip2(1).  All options specified are passed
       directly to cmp(1) or diff(1).  If only one file is specified, then the
       files compared are file1 (which must have a suffix of a supported  com‐
       pression format) and file1 from which the compression format suffix has
       been stripped.  If two files are specified, then they are  uncompressed
       if necessary and fed to cmp(1) or diff(1).  The exit status from cmp(1)
       or diff(1) is preserved.

       The names lzcmp and lzdiff are provided for backward compatibility with
       LZMA Utils.

       cmp(1), diff(1), xz(1), gzip(1), bzip2(1), zdiff(1)

       Messages	 from  the cmp(1) or diff(1) programs refer to temporary file‐
       names instead of those specified.
