NAME
       regdiff - Diff program for Windows registry files

SYNOPSIS
       regdiff [--help] [--backend=BACKEND] [--credentials=CREDENTIALS]
               [location]

DESCRIPTION
       regdiff compares two Windows registry files key by key and value by
       value and generates a text file that contains the differences between
       the two files.

       A file generated by regdiff can later be applied to a registry file by
       the regpatch utility.

       regdiff and regpatch use the same file format as the regedit32.exe
       utility from Windows.

OPTIONS
       --help
           Show list of available options.

       --backend BACKEND
           Name of backend to load. Possible values are: creg, regf, dir and
           rpc. The default is dir.

           This argument can be specified twice: once for the first registry
           file and once for the second.

       --credentials=CREDENTIALS
           Credentials to use, if any. Password should be separated from user
           name by a percent sign.

           This argument can be specified twice: once for the first registry
           file and once for the second.
