NAME
cmp - compare two files byte by byte SYNOPSIS
cmp [OPTION]... FILE1 [FILE2 [SKIP1 [SKIP2]]] DESCRIPTION
Compare two files byte by byte. -b --print-bytes 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 Compare at most LIMIT bytes. -s --quiet --silent Output nothing; yield exit status only. -v --version Output version info. --help Output this help. 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. Exit status is 0 if inputs are the same, 1 if different, 2 if trouble. AUTHOR

NAME
cmp - compare two files byte by byte SYNOPSIS
cmp [OPTION]... FILE1 [FILE2 [SKIP1 [SKIP2]]] DESCRIPTION
Compare two files byte by byte. The optional SKIP1 and SKIP2 specify the number of bytes to skip at the beginning of each file (zero by default). Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too. -b, --print-bytes print differing bytes -i, --ignore-initial=SKIP skip first SKIP bytes of both inputs -i, --ignore-initial=SKIP1:SKIP2 skip first SKIP1 bytes of FILE1 and first SKIP2 bytes of FILE2 -l, --verbose output byte numbers and differing byte values -n, --bytes=LIMIT compare at most LIMIT bytes -s, --quiet, --silent suppress all normal output --help display this help and exit -v, --version output version information and exit 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.
