NAME
tiffcmp - compare two TIFF files
SYNOPSIS
tiffcmp [options] file1.tif file2.tif
DESCRIPTION
tiffcmp compares the tags and data in two files created according to the Tagged Image File Format, Revision 6.0. The schemes used for com- pressing data in each file are immaterial when comparing data. Files are compared on a scanline-by-scanline basis after decompression. Most directory tags are checked, notable exceptions are GrayResponseCurve, ColorResponseCurve, and ColorMap tags. Data is not compared if any of the BitsPerSample, SamplesPerPixel, or ImageWidth values are not equal. By default, tiffcmp terminates if any difference is encountered.
OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -l List each byte of image data that differs between the files. -t Ignore any differences in directory tags.
OPERANDS
The following operands are supported: filex.tif The names of the TIFF files to be compared.
