	      Print differing bytes.

       -i SKIP	--ignore-initial=SKIP
	      Skip the first SKIP bytes of input.

       -i SKIP1:SKIP2  --ignore-initial=SKIP1:SKIP2

	      Skip the first SKIP1 bytes of FILE1 and the first SKIP2 bytes of FILE2.

       -l  --verbose
	      Output byte numbers and values of all differing bytes.

       -n LIMIT  --bytes=LIMIT

       SKIP1 and SKIP2 are the number of bytes to skip in each file.  SKIP values may be followed
       by the following multiplicative suffixes: kB 1000, K 1024, MB 1,000,000, M  1,048,576,  GB
       1,000,000,000, G 1,073,741,824, and so on for T, P, E, Z, Y.

       If a FILE is `-' or missing, read standard input.
