 NAME
      dircmp - directory comparison

 SYNOPSIS
      dircmp [-d] [-s] [-wn] dir1 dir2

 DESCRIPTION
      dircmp 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 filenames common to both directories have the same
      contents.

	   -d	   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).

	   -s	   Suppress messages about identical files.

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

 EXTERNAL INFLUENCES
    Environment Variables
      LC_COLLATE determines the order in which the output is sorted.

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

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

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

	   dircmp -d slate sleet

 WARNINGS
      This command is likely to be withdrawn from X/Open standards.
      Applications using this command might not be portable to other
      vendors' systems.	 As an alternative diff -R is recommended.
