The formats supported are bzip2, gzip, lzip and xz. The formats supported are bzip2, gzip, lzip, and xz.
Zdiff compares file1 to file2. If file2 is omitted zdiff tries the follow zdiff compares file1 to file2. The standard input is used only if file1

input. If file2 is omitted zdiff tries the following:
1. If file1 is compressed, compares its decompressed contents with the corresponding uncompressed - If file1 is compressed, compares its decompressed contents with the corresponding uncompressed
file (the name of file1 with the extension removed). file (the name of file1 with the extension removed).
2. If file1 is uncompressed, compares it with the decompressed c ontents of file1.[lz|bz2|gz|xz] - If file1 is uncompressed, compares it with the decompressed con tents of file1.[lz|bz2|gz|xz]

diff program used supports them.
Exit status is 0 if inputs are identical, 1 if different, 2 if trouble.
