    NAME

    diff - find differences between two files
     
    

    SYNOPSIS

    diff [options] from-file to-file  

    DESCRIPTION

    In the simplest case, diff compares the contents of the two files from-file and to-file. A file name of - stands for text read from the standard input. As a special case, diff - - compares a copy of standard input to itself.

    If from-file is a directory and to-file is not, diff compares the file in from-file whose file name is that of to-file, and vice versa. The non-directory file must not be -.

    If both from-file and to-file are directories, diff compares corresponding files in both directories, in alphabetical order; this comparison is not recursive unless the -r or --recursive option is given. diff never compares the actual contents of a directory as if it were a file. The file that is fully specified may not be standard input, because standard input is nameless and the notion of ``file with the same name'' does not apply.

    diff options begin with -, so normally from-file and to-file may not begin with -. However, -- as an argument by itself treats the remaining arguments as file names even if they begin with -.  

    Options

    Below is a summary of all of the options that GNU diff accepts. Most options have two equivalent names, one of which is a single letter preceded by -, and the other of which is a long name preceded by --. Multiple single letter options (unless they take an argument) can be combined into a single command line word: -ac is equivalent to -a -c. Long named options can be abbreviated to any unique prefix of their name. Brackets ([ and ]) indicate that an option takes an optional argument.
    -lines
    Show lines (an integer) lines of context. This option does not specify an output format by itself; it has no effect unless it is combined with -c or -u. This option is obsolete. For proper operation, patch typically needs at least two lines of context.
    -a
    Treat all files as text and compare them line-by-line, even if they do not seem to be text.
    -b
    Ignore changes in amount of white space.
    -B
    Ignore changes that just insert or delete blank lines.
    --brief
    Report only whether the files differ, not the details of the differences.
    -c
    Use the context output format.
    -C lines

    --context[=lines]
    Use the context output format, showing lines (an integer) lines of context, or three if lines is not given. For proper operation, patch typically needs at least two lines of context.
    --changed-group-format=format
    Use format to output a line group containing differing lines from both files in if-then-else format.
    -d
    Change the algorithm to perhaps find a smaller set of changes. This makes diff slower (sometimes much slower).
    -D name
    Make merged if-then-else format output, conditional on the preprocessor macro name.
    -e

    --ed
    Make output that is a valid ed script.
    --exclude=pattern
    When comparing directories, ignore files and subdirectories whose basenames match pattern.
    --exclude-from=file
    When comparing directories, ignore files and subdirectories whose basenames match any pattern contained in file.
    --expand-tabs
    Expand tabs to spaces in the output, to preserve the alignment of tabs in the input files.
    -f
    Make output that looks vaguely like an ed script but has changes in the order they appear in the file.
    -F regexp
    In context and unified format, for each hunk of differences, show some of the last preceding line that matches regexp.
    --forward-ed
    Make output that looks vaguely like an ed script but has changes in the order they appear in the file.
    -h
    This option currently has no effect; it is present for Unix compatibility.
    -H
    Use heuristics to speed handling of large files that have numerous scattered small changes.
    --horizon-lines=lines
    Do not discard the last lines lines of the common prefix and the first lines lines of the common suffix.
    -i
    Ignore changes in case; consider upper- and lower-case letters equivalent.
    -I regexp
    Ignore changes that just insert or delete lines that match regexp.
    --ifdef=name
    Make merged if-then-else format output, conditional on the preprocessor macro name.
    --ignore-all-space
    Ignore white space when comparing lines.
    --ignore-blank-lines
    Ignore changes that just insert or delete blank lines.
    --ignore-case
    Ignore changes in case; consider upper- and lower-case to be the same.
    --ignore-matching-lines=regexp
    Ignore changes that just insert or delete lines that match regexp.
    --ignore-space-change
    Ignore changes in amount of white space.
    --initial-tab
    Output a tab rather than a space before the text of a line in normal or context format. This causes the alignment of tabs in the line to look normal.
    -l
    Pass the output through pr to paginate it.
    -L label

    --label=label
    Use label instead of the file name in the context format and unified format headers.
    --left-column
    Print only the left column of two common lines in side by side format.
    --line-format=format
    Use format to output all input lines in in-then-else format.
    --minimal
    Change the algorithm to perhaps find a smaller set of changes. This makes diff slower (sometimes much slower).
    -n
    Output RCS-format diffs; like -f except that each command specifies the number of lines affected.
    -N

    --new-file
    In directory comparison, if a file is found in only one directory, treat it as present but empty in the other directory.
    --new-group-format=format
    Use format to output a group of lines taken from just the second file in if-then-else format.
    --new-line-format=format
    Use format to output a line taken from just the second file in if-then-else format.
    --old-group-format=format
    Use format to output a group of lines taken from just the first file in if-then-else format.
    --old-line-format=format
    Use format to output a line taken from just the first file in if-then-else format.
    -p
    Show which C function each change is in.
    -P
    When comparing directories, if a file appears only in the second directory of the two, treat it as present but empty in the other.
    --paginate
    Pass the output through pr to paginate it.
    -q
    Report only whether the files differ, not the details of the differences.
    -r
    When comparing directories, recursively compare any subdirectories found.
    --rcs
    Output RCS-format diffs; like -f except that each command specifies the number of lines affected.
    --recursive
    When comparing directories, recursively compare any subdirectories found.
    --report-identical-files

    -s
    Report when two files are the same.
    -S file
    When comparing directories, start with the file file. This is used for resuming an aborted comparison.
    --from-file=file
    Compare file to all operands. file can be a directory.
    --to-file=file
    Compare all operands to file. file can be a directory.
    --sdiff-merge-assist
    Print extra information to help sdiff. sdiff uses this option when it runs diff. This option is not intended for users to use directly.
    --show-c-function
    Show which C function each change is in.
    --show-function-line=regexp
    In context and unified format, for each hunk of differences, show some of the last preceding line that matches regexp.
    --side-by-side
    Use the side by side output format.
    --speed-large-files
    Use heuristics to speed handling of large files that have numerous scattered small changes.
    --starting-file=file
    When comparing directories, start with the file file. This is used for resuming an aborted comparison.
    --suppress-common-lines
    Do not print common lines in side by side format.
    -t
    Expand tabs to spaces in the output, to preserve the alignment of tabs in the input files.
    -T
    Output a tab rather than a space before the text of a line in normal or context format. This causes the alignment of tabs in the line to look normal.
    --text
    Treat all files as text and compare them line-by-line, even if they do not appear to be text.
    -u
    Use the unified output format.
    --unchanged-group-format=format
    Use format to output a group of common lines taken from both files in if-then-else format.
    --unchanged-line-format=format
    Use format to output a line common to both files in if-then-else format.
    --unidirectional-new-file
    When comparing directories, if a file appears only in the second directory of the two, treat it as present but empty in the other.
    -U lines

    --unified[=lines]

    -v

    --version
    Output the version number of diff.
    -w
    Ignore white space when comparing lines.
    -W columns

    --width=columns
