       cdbdiff - program to operate cookie (fortune) database


       cdbdiff [options] <database1> <database2> <resultfile>


       This manual page documents briefly the cdbdiff command.

       This  manual  page  was  written  for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution
       because the original program does not have a manual page.  Instead,  it
       has some plaintext documentation, see below.

       cdbdiff  is  a  program that compares two cookie databases and builds a
       list of those cookies that are only present in second, but not  in  the
       first of them. The input files are not modified in any way.


       A summary of options is included below. For a complete description, see
       the documentation in /usr/share/doc/cookietool directory

              Shows summary of options.

       -c     case sensitive comparisons.

              how fussy about word delimiters? (default: 2)

              input file format - -f3: cookies are separated  by  ’%%’  lines;
              -f2:  cookies  are  separated  by ’%’ lines (DEFAULT); -f1: each
              line is a cookie; -f0: each word is a cookie.

       -a     append if <resultfile> exists (instead of failing).
