       xzcmp, xzdiff, lzcmp, lzdiff - compare compressed files

       xzcmp [cmp_options] file1 [file2]
       xzdiff [diff_options] file1 [file2]
       lzcmp [cmp_options] file1 [file2]
       lzdiff [diff_options] file1 [file2]

       xzcmp  and  xzdiff  invoke  cmp(1)  or  diff(1)	on  files compressed with xz(1), lzma(1),
       gzip(1), or bzip2(1).  All options specified are passed directly to cmp(1) or diff(1).  If
       only one file is specified, then the files compared are file1 (which must have a suffix of
       a supported compression format) and file1 from which the  compression  format  suffix  has
       been  stripped.	 If  two files are specified, then they are uncompressed if necessary and
       fed to cmp(1) or diff(1).  The exit status from cmp(1) or diff(1) is preserved.

       The names lzcmp and lzdiff are provided for backward compatibility with LZMA Utils.

       cmp(1), diff(1), xz(1), gzip(1), bzip2(1), zdiff(1)

       Messages from the cmp(1) or diff(1) programs refer to temporary filenames instead of those
