       dircmp - directory comparison

       n] dir1 dir2

       examines	 dir1  and  dir2  and  generates various tabulated information
       about the contents of the directories.  Sorted listings of  files  that
       are  unique to each directory are generated for all the options.	 If no
       option is entered, a sorted list is output indicating whether the file‐
       names common to both directories have the same contents.

	      Compare the contents of files with the same name in
		      both  directories and output a list telling what must be
		      changed in the two files to bring them  into  agreement.
		      The list format is described in diff(1).

	      Suppress messages about identical files.

	      Change the width of the output line to
		      n characters.  The default width is 72.

   Environment Variables

       If  is  not specified in the environment or is set to the empty string,
       the value of is used as a default.  If is not specified or  is  set  to
       the  empty  string, a default of ``C'' (see lang(5)) is used instead of
       If any  internationalization  variable  contains	 an  invalid  setting,
       behaves	as if all internationalization variables are set to ``C'' (see

   International Code Set Support
       Single- and multi-byte character code sets are supported.

       Compare the two directories and and produce  a  list  of	 changes  that
       would make the directories identical:

       This  command is likely to be withdrawn from X/Open standards. Applica‐
       tions using this command might not be portable to other	vendors'  sys‐
       tems.  As an alternative is recommended.
