       docdiff — character/word-oriented diff


       docdiff [options]  file1 file2


       This manual page documents briefly the docdiff       commands.

       This  manual  page  was written for the Debian distribution because the
       original program  does  not  have  a  manual  page.   Instead,  it  has
       documentation in the HTML format; see below.

       docdiff  is a program that compares two files and shows the difference.
       It can compare files word by word, char by char, or line by  line.   It
       has  several  output  formats such as HTML/XHTML, tty, Manued, or user-
       defined markup.

       It supports several encodings  and  end-of-line  characters,  including
       ASCII, UTF-8, EUC-JP, Shift_JIS, CR, LF, and CRLF.
