xxdiff - a graphical file comparator and merge tool


xxdiff [OPTIONS] <path> <path> [<path>]


xxdiff is a graphical file and directories comparison and merge tool. It can be used for
viewing the differences between two or three files, or two directories, and can be used to
produce a merged version. The texts of the two or three files are presented side by side
with their differences highlighted with colors for easy identification.

The paths supplied on the command line identify the files to be compared. The paths may
be one of three things: a regular file, a directory or a '-', in which case the input for
that path will be read from standard input. If the paths are all directories, a directory
diff will be performed. If at least one path is a file or a '-', a file diff will be
performed. If there are directory names along with file names, the basename of the file
name will be appended to the directory names to find the other files to compare with. If
there are multiple file names specified and some directories names as well, xxdiff bails
out, since it doesn't know which basename to use for the missing one.

Please consult xxdiff --help for more documentation.
