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 files compressed via gzip.  All options speci-
       fied 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.
