xdelta Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies xdelta3-3.0.11.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

Thanks for downloading Xdelta!

This directory contains the Xdelta3 command-line interface (CLI) and source distribution for VCDIFF differential compression, a.k.a. delta compression. The latest information and downloads are available here:

http://xdelta.org/ http://github.com/jmacd/xdelta/

Xdelta can be configured to use XZ Utils for secondary compression:


The command-line syntax is detailed here:


Run 'xdelta3 -h' for brief help. Run 'xdelta3 test' for built-in tests.

Sample commands (like gzip, -e means encode, -d means decode)

xdelta3 -9 -S lzma -e -f -s OLD_FILE NEW_FILE DELTA_FILE xdelta3 -d -s OLD_FILE DELTA_FILE DECODED_FILE

The source distribution contains the C/C++/Python APIs, Unix, Microsoft VC++ and Cygwin builds. Xdelta3 is covered under the terms of the GPL, see COPYING.
