ZCMP(1)								       ZCMP(1)

       zcmp, zdiff - compare compressed files

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

       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.Z.  If two files are specified, then they are
       uncompressed  (if  ending  with ".Z") and fed to cmp or diff.  The exit
       status from cmp or diff is preserved.

       cmp(1), diff(1), zmore(1), zcat(1), compress(1), uncompress(1)

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