.SH DESCRIPTION
.I  Zcmp
and

are used to invoke the
.I cmp
or the
.I diff
program on compressed files.  All options specified are passed directly to

.I file1
and an uncompressed
.IR file1 ".gz."
If two files are specified, then they are uncompressed if necessary and fed to
.I cmp
or
.IR diff "."
The exit status from 
.I cmp
or
.I diff
is preserved.

.SH BUGS
Messages from the
.I cmp
or

programs refer to temporary filenames instead of those specified.
