NAME ^

diff - Perl Power Tools to compute `intelligent' differences between two files / lists

SYNOPSIS ^

Usage: $0 [{-c | -C lines -e | -f | -u | -U lines}] oldfile newfile

    -c do a context diff with 3 lines of context
    -C do a context diff with 'lines' lines of context (implies -c)
    -e create a script for the ed editor to change oldfile to newfile
    -f like -e but in reverse order
    -u do a unified diff with 3 lines of context
    -U do a unified diff with 'lines' lines of context (implies -u)
    -q report only whether or not the files differ

By default it will do an "old-style" diff, with output like UNIX diff
