NAME

pixcmp - compare two pix image files pixel by pixel

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

pixcmp [OPTIONS] FILE1 [FILE2 [SKIP1 [SKIP2]]]

DESCRIPTION

pixcmp is a program to compare two BRL-CAD pix image files pixel by pixel. The following OPTIONS are available:

-l

Output pixel numbers, counting from 1, and values for all pixels that differ.

-b

Use bytes instead of pixels for both processing and output. With this option, the -i SKIP values should be specified as bytes instead of pixels.

-i SKIP

Skip the first SKIP pixels of input (for FILE1 and FILE2).

-i SKIP1:SKIP2

Skip the first SKIP1 pixels of FILE1 and the first SKIP2 pixels of FILE2.

-s

Silent output. Only return an exit status.

SKIP1 and SKIP2 are the number of pixels to skip in each file.

If FILE is ‘-‘ or missing, pixcmp reads from the standard input.

RETURN VALUES

The pixcmp utility returns 0 if there are no differences, 1 if there are only off-by-one differences, 2 if there are off-by-many errors, 126 if there are file processing problems, and 127 if there are argument processing or usage errors.

EXAMPLES

pixcmp -l file1 file2

The two files are compared pixel by pixel with each difference printed instead of just the summary.

pixdiff file1.pix file2.pix | pixcmp - file3.pix

The pixdiff tool compares the pixels in file1.pix with those in file2.pix and then outputs a resulting ‘diff‘ image which is then processed by pixcmp as input and compared against file3.pix, reporting on the differences.
