MATCH(1)                                                 MATCH(1)

     NAME
          match - compare style tables from two or more texts

     SYNOPSIS
          match [ -flags ][ -ver ] [style-file1 [style-file2 ...]

     DESCRIPTION
          Match collates selected variables from tables produced by
          the style(1) command and prints values from the different
          files one below the other for easy comparison.  The style-
          files must contain tables produced by style.

          Match can also run on one file to produce an abbreviated
          version of the style table.

          When comparing texts, it is advisable to use texts of simi-
          lar length.

          Two options give information about the program:

               -flags print the command synopsis line (see above)
                      showing command flags and options, then exit.

               -ver   print the Writer's Workbench version number of
                      the command, then exit.

     USES
          This program is useful for visually inspecting similarities
          and differences among stylistic features of different docu-
          ments or drafts and their revisions.

     SEE ALSO
