TREECMP(1)						      General Commands Manual							TREECMP(1)

treecmp - recursively list differences in two directory trees SYNOPSIS
treecmp [-cv] olddir newdir OPTIONS
-c (changes) list the names of changed or new files -v (verbose) list all directories processed EXAMPLES
treecmp -v /usr/ast/V1 /usr/ast/V2 # Compare two trees DESCRIPTION
Treecmp recursively descends the directory tree of its second argument and compares all files to those at the corresponding position in the first argument. If the two trees are identical, i.e., all the corresponding directories and files are the same, there is no output. Oth- erwise, a list of files missing from one of the trees or present in both but whose contents are not identical in both are printed. When the -c flag is given, only files that are changed from the old version or are new (i.e., absent in the old version) are listed. TREECMP(1)

dircmp(1)						      General Commands Manual							 dircmp(1)

dircmp - Compares two directories SYNOPSIS
dircmp [-d] [-s] directory1 directory2 The dircmp command reads directory1 and directory2, compares their contents, and writes the results to standard output. STANDARDS
Interfaces documented on this reference page conform to industry standards as follows: dircmp: XCU5.0 Refer to the standards(5) reference page for more information about industry standards and associated tags. OPTIONS
Displays for each common file name the differing contents of the two files, if any. The display format is the same as that of the diff command. Does not list the names of identical files. OPERANDS
The path name of a directory to be compared. DESCRIPTION
First, dircmp compares the file names in each directory. When the same file name appears in both, dircmp compares the contents of the two files. In the output, dircmp lists the files unique to each directory. It then lists the files with identical names but different contents. If entered without a option, dircmp also lists files that have both identical names and identical contents. NOTES
[Tru64 UNIX] In many cases, diff -r, rather than dircmp, is preferred. The dircmp command is marked LEGACY. The diff -r command should be used instead. EXAMPLES
To summarize the differences between the files in two directories, enter: dircmp proj.ver1 proj.ver2 This displays a summary of the differences between the directories proj.ver1 and proj.ver2. The summary lists separately the files found only in one directory or the other, and those found in both. If the file is found in both directories, the file is listed. If the files are identical, dircmp displays identical; otherwise, dircmp displays different. To show the details of the differences between files, enter: dircmp -d -s proj.ver1 proj.ver2 The -s option suppresses information about identical files. The -d option displays a diff listing for each of the differing files found in both directories. SEE ALSO
Commands: cmp(1), diff(1) Standards: standards(5) dircmp(1)
