DIRCMP(1V)                                                          DIRCMP(1V)



NAME
       dircmp - compare directories

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/5bin/dircmp [ -d ] [ -s ] [ -wn ] dir1 dir2

AVAILABILITY
       This  command  is  available  with  the  System V software installation
       option.  See for information on how to install this command.

DESCRIPTION
       dircmp examines dir1 and dir2 and generates various tabulated  informa-
       tion  about the contents of the directories. Listings of files that are
       unique to each directory are generated for  all  the  options.   If  no
       option  is  entered,  a list is output indicating whether the filenames
       common to both directories have the same contents.

OPTIONS
       -d     Compare the contents of files with the same name in both  direc-
              tories 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.
