Description : Tarball comparison tool
TarDiff compares the contents of two tarballs and reports on any
differences found between them. Its use is mainly for release managers
who can use it as a QA tool to make sure no files have accidently been
left over or were added by mistake. TarDiff supports compressed
tarballs, diff statistics and suppression of GNU autotool changes.
There is a ptardiff command in the package perl, but it can only diff
tar balls against directories, not tarballs against tarballs.
Tardiff is also written in Perl, but does not use Archive::Tar but the
command tar itself.
