NAME

ftimes-cmp2diff - Display diff-like results of an FTimes comparison

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

ftimes-cmp2diff [-c {compare|-}] [-e field[,field[,...]]] [-f format] [-m mask] [-o option[,option[,...]]] -b baseline -s snapshot

DESCRIPTION

This utility takes baseline and snapshot map files as input, compares them using a specified or derived field mask, and displays the results in a diff-like format. This allows the user to see the details about what fields changed and how.

OPTIONS

-b baseline Specifies the name of an FTimes baseline map file.
-c {compare|-} Specifies the name of an FTimes compare file produced by comparing the snapshot to the baseline. A value of ’-’ will cause the program to read from stdin.
-e field[,field[,...]] Specified a list of map fields to ignore. No differences will be displayed for fields in this list.
-f format Specifies the type of diff format to display. The format can be one of {f|field}, {l|long}, or {s|short}. The default value is ’short’.
-m mask Specifies the field mask to use when generating output.
-o option,[option[,...]] Specifies the list of options to apply. Currently, the following options are supported:
ForceBuild Force the decoding of map files and creation of offsets files even if they already exist.
ForceClean Remove decoded map and offsets files upon program completion.
ModeDecode Converts the mode field into a standard UNIX representation (e.g., ’-rwxr-xr-x’).
NoDecode Do not decode the map files (i.e., assume that the baseline and snapshot are already decoded).

Note: If you enable this option and fail to specify decoded map files, don’t expect valid results.

UseBigIntegers Activate and use the Math::BigInt module for handling offset conversions. Generally, this option should only be used for backwards compatibility on 32-bit platforms. Enabling this option will impact performance, so use it only when necessary.
-s snapshot Specifies the name of an FTimes snapshot map file.

Note: While not strictly required, it’s best if the field mask used when taking the snapshot matches the one used to create the baseline.
