Compare the differences between and optionally merge 2 files.

  • Compare 2 files:

sdiff {{path/to/file1}} {{path/to/file2}}

  • Compare 2 files, ignoring all tabs and whitespace:

sdiff -W {{path/to/file1}} {{path/to/file2}}

  • Compare 2 files, ignoring whitespace at the end of lines:

sdiff -Z {{path/to/file1}} {{path/to/file2}}

  • Compare 2 files in a case-insensitive manner:

sdiff -i {{path/to/file1}} {{path/to/file2}}

  • Compare and then merge, writing the output to a new file:

sdiff -o {{path/to/merged_file}} {{path/to/file1}} {{path/to/file2}}
