NAME
       bzcmp, bzdiff - compare bzip2 compressed files

SYNOPSIS
       bzcmp [ cmp_options ] file1 [ file2 ]
       bzdiff [ diff_options ] file1 [ file2 ]

DESCRIPTION
       Bzcmp  and  bzdiff  are  used  to invoke the cmp or the diff program on
       bzip2 compressed 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.bz2.  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.
