CMP(1)                                                     CMP(1)

     NAME
          cmp - compare two files

     SYNOPSIS
          cmp [ -l ] [ -s ] file1 file2

     DESCRIPTION
          The two files are compared.  (If file1 is `-', the standard
          input is used.)  Under default options, cmp makes no comment
          if the files are the same; if they differ, it announces the
          byte and line number at which the difference occurred.  If
          one file is an initial subsequence of the other, that fact
          is noted.

          Options:

          -l    Print the byte number (decimal) and the differing
                bytes (octal) for each difference.

          -s    Print nothing for differing files; return codes only.

     SEE ALSO
          diff(1), comm(1)

     DIAGNOSTICS
          Exit code 0 is returned for identical files, 1 for different
          files, and 2 for an inaccessible or missing argument.
